He just acting as though all is hunky-dory, so I'm not terribly concerned at this time, other than finding the cause of the redness.
The only thing I can think of is perhaps since he's newly potty-trained (he's been in underwear full-time for 2 weeks now! ), and he doesn't "shake" when he's done peeing (hey, I don't have a penis - I didn't know that you gotta shake it until recently! :LOL) that perhaps that last little drop would have normally been sucked up by his absorbant diaper, is just kinda sitting there irritating things, as underwear isn't as absorbant as a diaper.
