Are bruise under ribs with tiredness and pale lips due to virus?

I have been very tired and weak the past couple of days, I thought I had a virus, but I started having pain under my ribs on the left side and now I have a bruise .I haven t fallen or hurt myself. The only other problem I have noticed is my skin color, it s pale, especially my lips. I don t feel like it s an emergency, as long as I lay down I feel fine. My husband is bugging me to be seen, I just don t want to waste money and time if I have a virus.

dear friend
please listen to your husband and get your self seen and blood tests done it certainly not a waste of money, your platelet count may have dropped and if it gets complicated a lot of money will then need to be spent to recover you which you then can consider wasted as it could have been prevented
