Chris C. :

These are likely caused by a fungal infection. This may not be something that you should be very worried about. In the absence of redness and penile discharge this may be a superficial skin condition. Fungal infections may present as black spots however and are usually associated with redness and itchiness. Just continue to observe the condition. Wash the area well with a mild cleanser and use an over the counter fungal ointment. This should resolve spontaneously given time. If the spots increase in number and size then you may need to have this assessed by a dermatologist.

Chris C. :

These dots would not be consistent with warts.
