If the yellow spots look somewhat like the following pictures, your plant may have produced a variegated "sport", or mutant part of a plant. Many "sport" plants have been developed as new varieties. It may be possible to take cuttings from the plant and grow more yellow-spotted plants.

If the spots are all round, it is more likely to be a disease, though.
