Welcome to HCM.
Most likely they are peticheal patches caused by capillary haemorrhages.
You will need thorough investigation to find out the cause for this. Most of the time it is not serious, may be caused by calcium deficiency but in certain cases they are very serious, so please do not ignore it.
Consult a doctor and get necessary investigations done including Total and differential count of WBC, platelet count etc.
