Seal and polish the effected area. The polish will help your floor to shine, while the sealant will protect the floors from everyday dirt and grime and make it easier for you to clean marble tiles on a regular basis.

If you’re not using a special marble cleaner, use warm water only.

I know this is an old post but I want to add something for the viewers.

I agree with the answers about the cleaning and repolishing and damaged marble floors. Damage may accur because of high traffic or lower quality polishing by the stone's producer. In this case it seem like it is about high traffic.
You can do celaning-repolishing but it seem like you will have the same problem in the future. It is not you are doing something wrong but probably your stone is too soft to use in a high traffic area.
If it is, I can suugest you to consider honing your floors rather than repolishing it. You can hone all the floor for once and than you can use some enhancer (must be applicable for floors) to catch shiny look.
Honed surface will look like a whole, the areas you use more and the tiles on the sides. I have done this couple of times before and it works very well.
Of course there will be a diferent look. But it saves you spending the same cost again.
I disagree about the one answer, which is "do not use the marble"
Usually natural stones are durable and requiress less maintenance. It doesn't mean everyone will have problem with their marble floors because some people had. It is a matter of taste. I suggest you to pick right material for the area you want to install. Get some more information before you make your purchase.

If you want to get rid of the stain from your marble floor then you can use bleach which clear the whole thing and will give you a great glittery floor. Or you can also use a rust remover. Follow the process specifically and do not leave on surface very long as acid in many rust removers can clear the surface.

I would polish and then seal the floor. I've found that vinegar is also good for removing cloudiness.
