Are these whiteheads or not (What's a "whitehead"?)

As I'm getting older (I'm 25) I am getting less of my standard acne and more of this thing which might or might not be whiteheads, I really don't know what they are.

They are pretty small, hard white little bumps that don't really seem to ever go away. They are particularly appearing on the top of one of my cheeks. I put acne medication on them every day but months later they are still there. I try my best to squeeze them and normally you can squeeze as much as you want but nothign will happen (except you might draw blood if you get carried away as I sometimes do). Sometimes, I squeeze them and some white stuff comes out like normal acne, and that one pretty much goes away. Since there's a tiny chance that that may happen and nothing else works, I keep trying.

Are these "Whiteheads", or, are "whiteheads" those softer, white-colored acne that is ready to pretty easily pop with squeezing?

How the HECK do you get rid of them??? Because I've tried everything that works for other acne and it's not making a bit of difference!!
