Change the color of a dot on the image in its own layer

I am creating a map with dots where a nonprofit has a presence so that when you mouse over the dot, it turns from blue to red. I have made the map and blue dots and then created a duplicate layer of each blue dot that I now want to change to red. I tried choosing the blue in the dot with the magic wand and  used the paint bucket to pour red over the dot, but the dot became a square.
There is probably some SIMPLE way to do this!

load the layer as a selection by cmd/ctrl clicking on the layer then open the hue/saturation dialogue box. >cmd/Ctrl U or found under menu > adjustments Hue/Saturation.

Check the colorize box and play with the sliders till you turn the blue dots to red.
