Basement Concrete Foundation

I was thinking about finishing my basement, built in 2007, but wasnt sure if I need to fix a foundation issue or not. I have some honeycomb like surfaces on the basement wall, its not smooth how concrete usually is. Before I dump money into fixing up my basement Name:  basement1.jpg

Size:  28.4 KBI want to make sure this is not an issue and just cosmetic. From What I have pulled from online is that this is a consolidating issue and not a deal breaker. I just want to make sure I wont have problems in the future when my basement is finished. If anyone knows from the pics if this is OK or not please let me know!

Thanks!

Who did the patch work in the first pic & why? Was there water damage?

I have no idea. When I got the house it was like that. My builder went out of business after building my house. I was glad it got finished and past the county inspection. That peice is what holds the main I beam and must of happened during construction when it was settling. The county didnt say anything so i figured it was just cosmetic issue. Any ideas if what you see could lead to potential problems, specifically the bottom picture, or if its just cosmetic? Again, what I read online would point not being a big deal but wanted to see if anyone else has seen or dealt with this before.

It could have been just a bad mix. I've seen driveways that looked similar. Try to determine if there were any water damage in the past. The would be my main focus.
