Small bump on upper lip

ok this is very important i've had this BUMP not bumps not plural at all. It's one single very tiny bump on my upper lip. in the pic it looks like a pimple with a whitehead but it doesn't. I tried poking it to see if there was anything in it like a blood blister because it's usually just a shade or so darker than my lip. there is only one, i've had a std panel in the last 8 months and was clean I'm gonna go soon and get checked up but I haven't had a active sex life this year because I just haven't been in the mood. I love my lips and this bump has been bothering me because i dont know what is and i dont have insurance so seeing a doctor is a lot of money. when my lips are just in normal position it's kinda hard to see the tiny bump i can notice it when I lick my lips

its not poppable or squeezable I tried and tried to today so its a little swollen

Possibly a mucous cyst, though uncommon on upper lip.
