Its nice to know you donated blood.Sometimes if you do not apply proper pressure on the spot from where blood was removed there is a chance that a few drops leak and gather under skin .It will become fine in a few days;don't worry.

General Surgeon Dr. Biji Thomas George's  Response
Don't worry about it. It is due to improper pressure application on the puncture site.
It has caused a small haematoma which will resolve by itself in a weeks time. You also will feel a mild aching sensation of your arm for a couple of days. Please hydrate yourself well.
Congratulations on having donated your blood.
You can safely donate every month without any effects on your body at all.
