Bumps on penis

Patient

Q: I noticed several smalls bumps in one area on my penis on the shaft (right side) they are round and skin colored. One of them has a red base and a yellow-ish head. I also have a pimple-like bump on the head of my penis. There is 5 bumps total, and only 2 resemble pimples. They are all pretty small. I am 23 years old and I am sexually active. I have had unprotected sex numerous times in the past year. I pinched the pimple-like bump on the shaft of my penis and it bled a very small amount and there may have been a tiny amount of clear fluid (hard to tell because if there was it wasnt very much). I am very concerned about STDs and I do not have access to free testing. Could they simply be pimple-related or is there a good chance I may have herpes?

Symptoms:  No symptoms besides bumps except maybe dry skin
