Skin coloured spots on nipples

Hey,
I have noticed a few skin-coloured spots or small areas of skin on my breasts but i'm not sure whether to worry or not as i am only 16 and have only in the last year begun to develop breasts

Is this normal? Or could there be further explanations behind it? Other than just developing breast..

Thank You
