Pimple: Most probably. Use some lube when you enjoy yourself. It may or may not be connected. Put warm compresses on these as you're able until they heal. If not gone or much improved by two weeks, get with your physician. It might be a good time to talk with somebody about your changing body -- maybe even Dad. Best wishes.

Small red bumps: This may be some type of allergic reaction; it is not suggestive of a sexually transmitted disease. Try using a condom to see if still happens.
