make/change the image data , upload it into a texture with glTexSubImage2D(..) and draw that texture on the screen

there is also glDrawPixels, but usually implemented very poorly.
glBegin( GL_POINTS ) might work for you too, but changing the colours will be lots of state changes and points are usually not implemented all that fast either.
