I have red dots on my skin after some bad sun burn but they don't look bad, I've never been in a tanning bed, could they be dangerous?

In brief: No, not dangerous

Red dots that appear in the exposed area after a severe sunburn are not dangerous, and if they represent capillary damage they will fade in a week or so (depending on the degree of injury).
If they last longer they could be cherry angiomas, another benign condition.
