Blood spots rash under skin on left breast at the bottom and it itches a little. I am scared to death. Can this be breast cancer?

In brief: Probably not

This sounds more like a heat rash or contact dermatitis and not cancer. However, if it does not resolve quickly, you should see your physician.
You are young but inflammatory breast cancer typically presents as a skin redness and inflammation and can progress rapidly.

In brief: Rash

Not likely a breast cancer, more likely a skin disease like eczema, which especially with pendulous breasts may become irritated or infected.
First see your pcp or obg for a good breast exam including palpation for masses or nipple discharge. This may just be a skin disease, but should be checked.
