Bumps, scabs under the penis. STD?

About 1-2 weeks ago i noticed a bump at the bottom of the shaft of my penis right where it starts to get hairy. The bump looked like a bug bite or an ingrown hair . it had fluid in it so i popped the bump and kind of a white to clear fluid came out. It scabbed up kind of like a blackish scab. A few days later another bump formed on the shaft of my penis and is also scabbed over now with a black scab. Just yesterday about 2 more tiny bumps appeared. one popped like a pimple looking puss and the other too small to pop. the one is now scabbed also with a blackish lookin scab. They dont really hurt or itch or anything unless you mess with the scab then it hurts just like picking a scab for a scraped knee or something. Im curious if this is an std or what. I havent been tested for a couple months but now im going to go soon, but would still like to hear some input. Also when the first bump started to form I was sick from like a cough and mucus and sore throat didn t know if it was related.
