This morning I found little red dots on the tip of my tongue, and at the back my tongue is white, what is that? I think I woke up sick.

Don't worry

Tongue
In general, I tell my patients not to worry about what their tongue looks like. The tongue has an amazing ability to look different at different parts of the day, people often get very concerned about it. If your tongue doesn't hurt or bother you in any way then leave it alone and you will be fine.

What are the Tiny red bumps on tip of tongue?

Taste buds!

Red_bumps
Paul, those are probably your taste buds, known anatomically as your "papillary" taste buds. Sometimes they get inflamed and sore (from spicy/salty food or from microscopic trauma) and then the condition is called papillitis.

Soar taste buds. Red raised spots on tip of tongue. Taste buds are the only spot effected. Use chewing tobacco?

Possible cause

Chewing_tobacco
Stop the smokeless tobacco and see if your problem stops. Tobacco increases the incidence of oral cancer, so the sooner you stop, the better the chances you will stay healthy.

Small, white, painless bump on tip of tongue. What is this?

White bump

Wounds
There are several possible diagnoses for this, and even though clinical impression is very useful in differentiating a diagnosis, the only definitive way to detrmine exactly what something is would be to biopsy the lesion. Some other useful information would be how long it has been there, are there any habits that may irritate the area and cause a fibrous callous thype area...

You need to see a dentist in order to evaluate what caused the white spot and now the soreness on your tongue and what can be done. These situations need personal evaluation and cannot be diagnosed or treatment suggested over the internet.

All you did was

Pimples
convert a closed wound to an open one. Leave them alone, rinse your mouth with warm saline (1 tsp table salt in a quart of water approximates that), and leave it alone for a week.
