In brief: Check bruises out

It sounds like those are bruises, or blood vessels that are breaking.
Without trauma as a cause, they could be from a bleeding problem from disease (like liver, or blood abnormality) or medications (like Aspirin or similar drugs, or coumadin) or even some kinds of cancers (leukemia). Or they just happen! best to be checked out.
