Pubic Lice Possibility?

Hello all

I have recently started to see my pubic hair stick together on one side and I find little (tiny) whitish-gray oval things clinging on it and on the bases, but I am not sure if they are not just dirt or something else.

I don't experience any itching, but my pubic hair now falls out easily (a symptom?) and upon closer examining under a lamp, I see that it has little curly strands of unknown origin (NOT my hair, maybe fibers from underwear?) on it and the bases of all hairs are a little red (blood?).

I am a 17 year old male, and I have not engaged in sex in my life.

Should I get a pubic lice treatment or am I misdiagnosing? Is there enough information?

Thank you
