What are your growing conditions? Day/night temperatures? Humidity? What kind of light? How are you watering? How long have you had it? Have you ever repotted it?

It could stay like that for a while, or you could repot. If you repot you could soak the whole plant in water for a few hours so the roots are softer. Then you might be able gently to coil them into...

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

Spotting like this is usually caused by insufficient watering or by too high levels of minerals in the water. How are you watering? Are you fertilizing?

This can also happen when conditions aren't just right - maybe too low humidity, maybe wrong temperatures. And it can be residual damage from bugs like spider mites, thrips, mealy bugs or scale.
