Petechiae. Is it Leukaemia?

I have two purple pin prick spots of Petechiae on my chest. I have not been itching there, had any trauma to that area or had a cough/vomiting e.t.c. When I saw it I remembered that I had had two spots on another area of my chest before, about 3 weeks-a month ago. My spots are singular and are surronded by a rash of Petechiae spots.vI have no other Symptoms but am still in a total panic it is Leukaemia. I am a 20 Year Old Female. Did snyone with Leukaemia experience Petechiae as a first Symptom or not? Does it sound like mine?

Thank You .
