Thanks for your query.
The pimple like thing on the top eyelid is most likely to be a stye.
Normally it is caused by blockage of a oil gland or staphylococcus infection.
For treatment initially you can use a antibiotic drops and if it does not help consult a Opthalmologist for examination and he will do the needful.
Take care.
