Importing a pdf-File into Photoshop CC, some pics are transparent (~50%). If you open a window to edit the pic, the color in the Info will show you the original color (the pic is show as usual), but if you close the window without doing anything the percentage in the Info will the origin. The problem doesn't exist in PS CS5 and CS5.1

I'd need to see an example PDF file to see what is going on.

I've made a layer with a white field behind it: The Color in the Info-Box has changed!?!

The Color that was shown in the info-box is from the bottom bar at the left (blue).

If I import the file with CS5.1 all the things are ok. rgb or cmyk will show always the same result.

Changing the Color-Prefs in PS CC doesn't matter. Using another Computer show the same result.
Of Course: I'm always using this tool to import my pdfs to render it for lenticular-production and I'm always using 'Mediasize' because image-cropping is not useful for this.

The Import-Option 'Begrenzungsrahmen' brings a different result!

So the next Problem has appeared:
Importing Files without transparencies make small lines in the picture. In Photoshop CS 5.5 there are no lines.

Of course there is no reason for using CC any more.

That's a different issue, and already covered in another topic.
Short version: it is a problem in the way those PDFs were created, and they cannot be rasterized perfectly because of that problem.
