Glands of montgomery:
Really a good question. These "bumps" are gland openings called the glands of Montgomery. These glands produce fluid to keep the areola lubricated and smooth.
It is very normal for teens to have irregular periods. As times goes on this most likely will straighten out and the periods will be more regular. If no period in 6 months then see a Dr. ...Read more

No, if a true period: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women.
