covering black spots on furniture

Hello, I have a small side table that I have sanded down to bare wood and I wanted to stain it but it has dark black spots. My questions is what I can do to hide them so that I can still stain it, also I just purchased some calk paint and I wonder if I use that instead will it cover it or do I still need to prime it with something? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
