Brief Answer:
Subungual haemorrhage

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have read your query and viewed the image.

Seems like a subungual haemorrhage. It should resolve in a matter of few weeks. Watch out for it to grow out along with the nail.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
