Hard spots on knee, circular bruise with white in the center. Cause and treatment?

About 2 days ago I felt a hard spot on the side more towards the back of my knee . I gently pressed on it and just left it alone and went on with my daily activities. I didn t think anymore about it and this morning I was in the shower and relized I have a circular bruise with white in the center. Do you know what this might be?
