Rose leaflet pest damage - help a rose newbie!

I noticed some discolored leaves on my Ramblin' Red this afternoon when I was poking around the newly-planted baby. Being a beginner in the rose arena, I have no clue what it is since pics I've found online don't really match ones I've seen regarding spider mites. The eggs are more thread-like, not crystalline - however, I haven't put in much time searching for possible pests. Also saw one very tiny white spider hanging on the trellis that's supporting the rose.

I'm in NW Iowa zone 4b/5, if that makes any difference :)

Any info & advice greatly appreciated!
