20yr female. Non-smoker. Doesn’t drink. I’ve had little red bumps in the back of my throat kind of like pimples. Not white in color. What is it?

In brief: Hard to say

The back of the throat is populated by both regular tissue and scattered islands of lymphoid tissue like tiny tonsils.
They are often seen as "cobblestoning" of the throat texture. Without looking at the area it is hard to say what you are describing. If there are no associated symptoms I would consider them likely normal.
