In brief: May be freckles

In fact, the penis, scrotum and the vulva, in females, are the darkest areas of skin on adult humans, and many people have dark freckle like marks on this area.
They may get red from friction from bathing, toweling, or from heat and sexual friction. They are likely not a problem and not dangerous, but if they persist and worry you, show them to your dermatologist.
