Two wierd things with my eyes

I have 2 wierd eye things happen to me and I love to know why I get them. Here they are:

1) When I go to a web site with a black background with white letters and I look at that for a time I get these white and black lines "watermarked" for a better term (I don't know what to call it) across my eyes. When I look around I see it. But those lines go away in a few minutes.

2) When I rub my eyes for a time I get wierd kaladascope patterns and then all white.

So why do I get these? Thank you for the help.
