Not likely: These are probably benign bumps knows as fordyce's spots.

No: These are either acne, infected hair follicles, or the normal, healthy sebaceous glands that some folks call Fordyce spots. All young men enjoy their bodies as you're doing. Think about something nice -- maybe even that one special person in your future -- rather than internet trash, and talk with a few reasonable adults -- perhaps even Dad. Best wishes.
