Red bruise on chin, no pain. No trauma. What should I do?

Hi, I have just spotted a sudden red-purple bruise on my chin , it appeared just like that, 10 minutes ago it wasn t there and now when I looked to the mirror I saw it. It is about 2cm circle, doesn t hurt or feels in any way unusual, it is the only one and I ve never had this before. And for sure I didn t hurt myself in any way. What should I do? Thanks!
