Hello and welcome to HCM,
A bruise with different colors in the center and the periphery is a classical example of resolving bruise.
Bruises occur due to blunt trauma to the skin.
However, you do not memorize being hit by any object or trauma; but it is unlikely to be due to any other cause.
If there is history of frequent bruising, you need to consult your hematologist for evaluation of platelet function tests and coagulation profile.
If this is an isolated example then you needn't worry.

Thanks and take care
