Help me out and tell me this isn't all that bad. I clean and lube my chain religiously every 300 miles, yet I noticed this week I have a couple links with some rust growing on them. I ride in the rain alot, and I do inspect the chain the following day after riding in the rain. This chain only has 2k on her (hell, so does the bike) is there anything I can do to get rid of this little bit of rust? I don't mind springing for a new chain if I HAVE to, but would like to salvage this one if at all possible!

As squid said, a little rust on side plates is OK. If you want to try to remove it, carefully try a wire brush and some oil. The key is to remove the rust and coat the part so water doesn't penetrate it again soon. Just make sure that all the links still move freely. If any of them start to get stiff and can't be loosened up with cleaning, then it might be time for a new chain.
