Sep 15, Marigold plants to deter bugs

Marigold leaves with bugsI just started my garden. I was told Marigolds deter bugs. So I started planting with them. But what are the colorless trails infecting the Marigold leaves? They are in potting soil.
Also the trails seem to be inside the leaves and I see black substances in these winding trails.
How do I get rid of it? I have tried spraying with Neem oil solution. But that didn't help.
I live in a place where there are a lot of bugs. White flies, leaf hoppers, ground termites, spider mites, you name it. I'm trying to go natural, but it doesn't look promising. Can anyone help?
