Okay, so I think i have blood clots.
On my right leg right above the knee, I have 2 red dots underneath the skin. and around them it looks like theres kind of a white circle? not white, but it looks like there isn't any blood flow around these red dots. It's kind of hard to explain. But there are no bumps, its all underneath the skin. I didn't know if you could see blood clots through the skin, so I thought I would ask.

If they're blood clots the area will feel hot to the touch, and will be painful.   Instead this sounds to me like Petechia, small broken blood vessels near the skin.   Give your doctor a call and describe your symptoms, he/she will determine whether it is something serious enough to look at further.

oh, it doesn't feel hot to the touch. But it kind of hurts when you press on it.
