Noticed slight redness and bumps on penis. No pain. Could this be STD?

On the weekend I noticed slight redness to what appeared to be some of my hair follicles on my penis (right hand underside shaft) and thought nothing of them.
It is now Friday and I now have two shiny red bumps (not raised - more like blemishes)
One is around 5mm, the other is around 3mm.
When I looked at them yesterday, it appeared to me as though to the centre of them was a black dot (possible trapped hair).
I went home yesterday and removed at least one hair from one or two of them (small hairs, hence my uncertainty).
They are completely painless and are not raised.
Could they be an STD?

I shaved last week with an electric razor but have also had unprotected sex.

Please help.
