Herpes: Herpes are not pimples. They are a cluster of blisters and are very painful.

Maybe: Unlikely if they don't hurt or burn but probably worth getting checked out by a doctor. There are often community health clinics or even planned parenthood which will let you go without your folks (otherwise an issue for 16 year olds) and get seen free.
