Had a sore throat and notice small red bumps on my throat

So I had a sore threat around 7 days ago (got a cough afterwards, and a slight cold) and I checked my throat in the mirror with a light and i noticed small red bumps at the back of my mouth. This was the first time i've ever actually looked at my throat when sick so I don't know if this is a normal occurrence. My sore throat has been gone for 3 days now, and I only cough a bit at night now, i'm mostly fine already just the lingering cough and very slightly runny nose but the red bumps are still there. I don't know if this is caused by the sickness or if I already had these before hand. Any idea what these are? link to a picture of the bumps:
