Rust Causing Bike Problems (Pics included)

So, my bike works fine but I was wondering if there will be any future problems from my chain and wheel screws accumulating rust. Those are the only areas that I noticeably see any visible rust.

Are other areas of my bike also getting rusty (even the non visible areas of rust)?

How much would a bike chain cost to replace?

I have a Bianchi Pista Chrome Lite that is 21.5" Inches if that helps.

It's not that bad. You can clean up or replace the nuts, and the chain will respond very well to some oil. The rust on the chain won't come off, but will darken and barely be noticeable. As long as you keep it oiled the rust won't get worse.
