In brief: Have it checked

If you are worried about that mole, talk to your parents and make an appointment with a board certified dermatologist,

A biopsy will tell you what it is for sure.

In brief: I don't know, but...

You need to have this checked out, ideally by a dermatologist.
The only way to know for sure is to have it removed and examined under the microscopet.
