My boyfriend pinches me, gently slaps me, is this considered abuse?

My boyfriend and I have been together for around 2 months and he's behaviour is starting to be unormal.

It started with pinching my legs so I get small bruises. And we're not even arguing, it happens randomly.

Now its escalated to slapping my face and arm gently, slapping my butt really hard so it gets really red (it hurts bad). He gets a crazy look in he's eyes when doing it, like its all black...
