Recurring redness with bumps on the urethral opening. What is the cause?

Hi Dr. Prasad. I am a 23 year old male and over the past few days I have been noticing a strange redness on the opening of my urethra . I opened it slightly with my fingers and can see 2 or 3 small bright red bumps. Almost as if they are hidden in the opening of the urethra. When I stand normally, the opening of the urethra is very red in one spot about 2 or 3 millimetres big. What could this be? Thanks
