So even though my toe only has a little spot of purple coloring I should still go get it checked out?

The dark colour is due to clotted blood. It would be wise to visit the Emergency Department at a Hospital immediately. You would be asked to take an X-ray of your toe and will give appropriate treatment and also relief of your pain.
