Petechia??

My little one is 4 weeks old and has some spots on her leg. They are only on one leg and only below the knee. They showed up 3 days ago and have not gotten worse nor better. I took her to our doc and they said they were petechie. The first doc said she would order bloodwork, but upon asking another doc for his opinion he said to wait for bloodwork. Being she is so little I can't help but be concerned. And I do believe they should have ordered the bloodwork that day to be safe, that however is besides the point. I was wondering if anyone has any insight on this that may ease my mind or even prepare me for what I may potentially be up against.
