Hello,
Welcome to the magical world of health care,
I went through your query, and the colour is the collection of blood as a sign of injury. you need to look for
1 any instability or odd feeling of falling while walking
2 persistent pain.
3 Swelling of the knee joint.
if any of these is present an MRI of the knee will be needed.
I hope my advice would have been useful, in decision making regarding your treatment, still if you have any clarifications or doubts feel free to contact back.
Thanks.
