Could be the normal pigment of your skin. I have some "redder" areas on my face, arms etc. I'm quite pale, though.

Check with a dermatologist if it's bugging you.

But my question is: can early symptom of HIV rash can look like this.

No, Rash from HIV is usally always on the trunk of the body and it always comes with a fever and other sypmtoms and it lasts at least 3 days or more with fever

Thanks, some doctor told me yesterday that even it isn't a rash, i have too small blotches, on my forehead and no pain, nothing.

Rash from any systemic infection/disease will always normally come with other symptoms. Even if you had a fever with your rash that still does not point to HIV. Symptoms mean absolutely nothing. I've been tested negative out to 6 months and had pityriasis rosea all over my body, including my penis. I also had a slight sinus infection during/before this time and my lymph nodes were enlarged.

I've learned (the hard way) that symptoms aren't an indicator for anything.
