    Yep sand that area down , and some of the area around so you can feather the paint in after you sand out the bumps. Then just prime and paint .

    Sand far enough to remove the pebble and make it all smooth. Feather out a ways so you don't leave a noticeable low spot. I would use 600 grit or finer. If you go through the clear, you'll hafta paint and clear over that spot. If it's only on the surface, you might get away with just buffing out the sanded area.
