Could be: Normal pigmentation. If they have just appeared as opposed to you just noticing them there are a number of causes like allergy, oral fungal infections or even petchie from a low blood count. See your dentist and if not satisfied see your md.

No way to know: Without actually seeing them. At least if we had a photo we could help answer the question better. If i gave you as list of 4 or 5 possibilities, would that really help you in any way? See your dentist for an accurate answer to your question.
