I recently discovered small brown spots on my stomach that was covered by the hair in that region. I'm 22 with no serious medical history. Any ideas?

In brief: Probably benign

Small brown spots don't raise urgency to me.
Without seeing them, one cannot give good advice, however. There is a good likelihood of this being a benign process, however, there are lesions of "brown" color that could be significant. I would recommend a check by your pcp or a dermatologist at your next exam or if a changing lesion or worried, sooner.
