No that is not leukoplakia,
On the very back of your tongue, everyone has those white bumps - they are normal. I thought that was thrush. My doctor laughed about that - it is completely normal. Thrush would hurt like crazy from what I have heard, if you had it you would be in pain. But, anyways, the bumps and white look on the back of your tongue is very normal.
