I'm not sure if anything is wrong with you. It's possible that you have a sexually transmitted infection as a result of sexual contact (genital warts/HPV?), but it is also possible that the bumps you are noticing are not anything significant. Sometimes people confuse naturally occuring "skin tags" as some sort of STD. Regardless, seeing a doctor should give you a better idea of what is going on. It doesn't sound like an emergency, but getting a check-up might help your anxiety.
It seems like you are in a difficult situation because of your mom. Is there a way you could ask your mom to see a doctor without having to tell her what's going on? You could say that you are too embarassed to talk about it with her and would prefer to talk with a doctor? If not, try contacting Planned Parenthood (see their website http://www.plannedparenthood.org) to see if they can help out or suggest a plan.
