Is it just one brick thats cracked which could just be a foriegn substance in the clay when it was made and cooked to hard or is there cracks in the mortor joints around the brick which could mean a bit of movement this also depends how old the brick and property is and where the damage is.
The white is a thing called efflorecence which means the sal;ts in the materials when the brick eas made just being washed out of the materials not really a problem just unsightly
