Microwave ovens do not produce ionizing radiation. The only risk from leakage is burns.

If the damage is not fixed, it can arc and char, and eventually burn a hole in the chassis, and damage the magnetron.

It's better to fix this early and it's simple. It will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

When i turn the microwave on it has electrical short it is like there is something metal inside and everything still works what causes the electical flash

The interior of the microwave is insulated with an industrial white enamel paint to prevent the magnetron from arcing on the inside, some of the enamel has worn off exposing metal,or the magnetron is shorting, either way this is very unsafe to use and should be checked quickly, and left unplugged in the process.

The inside of my micro wave has discolored and has some rust spots right through the paint. Can I use a high gloss enamel spray paint to cover this or do I need a special kind of paint for this...

Not regular enamel paint.

The area may first have to be sanded smooth, but it should at least be cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Flash in oven

The flash is usually caused by metal either being placed inside of micro or the interior surface might have chipped enamel exposing the metal underneath. Make sure no metal materials are placed inside while using and that the interior surface is in good condition.

Non-Stick surface peeling off inside microwave.

Normally you can strip and sand the old paint, get it squeaky clean, and use appliance paint. Yes indeed it is a heat-resistant enamel. You can get it from appliance parts stores, Wal-Mart, or home centers, etc. BUT if it's under warranty I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET) and I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.
