Petechaie w/ gum bleeding and fever?

Hi, yesterday I came in from a hour long run and noticed some petechiae on my outer thigh. The cluster was about the size of my hand. I was really startled and read that if the petechiae was anywhere but your face and it was sudden then you should seek immediate medical attention and I've flossed three times in the past two days and each time my gums bled, today it didn't really spread, but some were much darker; and finally, I started feeling really weird while running today; unable to run a full five minutes without needing to stop I went home and i feel as though a fever is coming on.

I'm out of town with a friend (I'm 15) so I can't really go to the hospital. Is this cause for concern? Could I have ITP? Leukemia? Or am I just over reacting?
Thanks so much!
