Noticed some spots that look like bruises under my arm, right above the arm pits. I haven't done anything to cause bruising. Should I worry about this?

In brief: Dermatological, infx
It depends on what these "bruises" look like.
Is there anything oozing out? If they look bruise like and you've never had these before, then may just be some sort of inflammatory response or a possible bleeding disorder. What else systemically, if anything, has been going on? Could also coordinate with your cycle.
