I understand your concern. In order for me to get a better idea I would need more information, so let me ask you a couple of questions.
Are you sexually active?

Are the dots you mention pimples, red spots or white spots?

Is it itchy?

No I never had sex and its not burning when I urine (but one time it happened but not anymore) The dots aren't pimples they are very tiny and I think its white or the color of my dick. I don't think its a rash but I don't know and there is no pain. It is not itchy

Brief Answer:
It doesn't look like an infection

Detailed Answer:
In the absence of pain, burning, itchiness and uncomfortable feeling I do not think there is anything to worry about. It might be age-related and hormonal reaction. Hygiene is also very important.
However if you develop any other symptoms, it would be best to get checked by a doctor.

Wishing you all the best.
