Based on the pictures alone, I would say there's a little bit of both. Marks would be visual discoloration in the skin and the scars are the small little holes or the patches where skin seems inconsistent and not smooth. They're not always permanent, especially on young skin, so nothing to worry as far as I can see. This is just my opinion, though. You should still show it to a professional in person if it concerns you.

I don't see scars I see hyperpigmentation or PIE. This is the after effects of acne, aka the wound. Your best bet is to use something like hydroquinone and vitamin c serum. If this does not work, go get laser done vbeam, excel v, ipl, or 1064nm laser are the best for pigment issues. IT will take several of them. You may also get some glycolic or tca peels for light textural issues. We have a faq on this, it's the first post in the hyperpigmentation sub.
