Thanks for using Health Care magic .

I would be pleased to answer your question .

You don't need to worry Swamil . A little bleeding in to skin and bruising is commonly seen at the site of the puncture in the skin . The clotting is the accumulation of the blood in that area . There is nothing for you to worry and it would soon resolve on its own in 5 to 15 days .

thanks and take care

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Some of the blood that escaped from the vein, got in to the arm tissue, and clotted, and turned blue. It happens many times. Will be fine in 4-5 days, you can apply some ice and massage gently.
