What are these black spots?

I have these brown-black spots on my belly. When there were few, I used to ignore them. But now there are 30-40 of them. They look like scars, but even itch at times.
My dad, who's a diabetic, has a blackened leg. Could i also be having diabetes? Are my spots symptoms? Coz I've got no other symptom of the disease. Do you think its pigmentation?
Coz I don't have Diabetes insipidus for sure (I don't pass excess urine). Is it Diabetes mellitus?Should I visit a doctor?
