Small red bump on penis shaft

Here are the details of what I have:

Lost virginity on the 2nd of October , she has had 2 other partners (she is 15, I am 15 and a half), always used condom, we foolishly didn't. We are currently monogamous.
Sex again on 4th of October, used condom this time
Small red bump 3-4mm diameter, dry, slightly shiny, painless, firm. Appeared on 12th or 13th, slightly forward from base of shaft. Second one appeared about 24hrs after, slightly down from the head, on the underside of shaft, both completely painless. Thought was ingrown hair, squeezed, only small amount of blood came out. Seem to be going away, washing everyday. On 16th, bump on underside of shaft gone except for very small scab from when I squeezed it thinking it was an ingrown hair.  I am worried about it maybe being a syphilis chancre.
Should I be worried about it being an STD, or am I being a little too paranoid?

It is definitely not an ulcer or a sore, and looks very like a early stage pimple with no white or black head.

odds are this isn't a std. you need to be seen and get this looked at.

Alright, thank you. I remember having something a bit like this before I lost my virginity, I just got freaked out because I stupidly didnt use a condom the first time. I now keep one in my back pocket at all times, when we are alone

Also it seems to be going away fairly quickly, alot faster than I have heard and read that syphilitic chancre or other things go away

And when I get ingrown hairs or pimples I never notice them until they get a white head because thats when they get tender to the touch for me. So I'm thinking that's what it is, because I grow hair in both those areas and also shave there. But I will definitely get it looked at just to be completely safe.
