From a quick google red spots are a sign of high amonia. Have you got a test kit if so whats the readings? Hopefully a liquid test kit and not a test strip.

Usually red spots related to high ammonia are around the gills. This is the ammonia actually burning the fish's gills. I've heard that the gills will turn almost black when they are healing from burnt gills.
