Yellow bump on my lip

I recently noticed tonight (within the last two hours) a small bump on my lower lip. It resembles two white heads but more yellowish. It does not hurt or cause any pain but after noticing it I scared myself on google and convinced myself I have a form of cold sores/herpes. I'm looking for actual knowledgeable advice. If you feel like you can confidently tell me whats going on with my body I would really appreciate you taking a look at some pictures I have taken tonight within minutes of noticing the irritation. I am willing to email them to you or if you have a preferred method that is also fine with me. The only real correlation I can draw in my head is hooking up with a tinder girl I don't really know this past Monday and studying in an all nighter for a final exam last night, which was very stressful.
