Blood clot under left hand thumb nail

sir, a light brown mark appeared at the base of the left hand thumb nail. Then as the nail grew the mark became bigger. After about three weeks the brown mark has has become darker and covered about half the length of the left half of the nail and at the base of the the nail the brown mark appears as though it is a blood clot. I havent had any injury and neither do I have any pain. Could you kindly explain.
