I woke up with a bump on my arm that looked like a pimple. It was hard and had white stuff come out. It was very painful. Could that be a spider bite?

In brief: Bump on arm

Sounds more like an infected pimple.
Spider bites do not usually have white material coming out. If this does not clear up quickly, see your doctor to be sure you do not have a MRSA bacterial infection.
