In brief: Nope

Herpes doesn't behave this way at all.
Also, herpes lesions never remain unchanged for days at a time. They get inflamed, maximally in 2-3 days, then heal, always gone within 2 weeks. Herpes often recurs, but never more often than once a month, and between outbreaks there is nothing visible and no pain, discomfort, or anything else. Whatever you have, it isn't herpes.

In brief: Warts

Painless skin colored bumps on the head of the penis are most likely a type of wart.
Molluscum Contagiosum is a common sexually transmitted cause of this. See a doctor for evaluation and unless this turns out to be something else, always use condoms when having sex to avoid spreading it.
