Possibly blood: Unless you ate something that would have been a similar color, purplish black material in your vomit may well be blood from an ulcer or other source of 'upper GI' bleeding. If you're still nauseated and vomiting, and that material comes out, you should go to the ER. If you feel better, you should still see your doctor today and be evaluated.

Gastritis: It sounds like you might have inflammation of the stomach, or gastritis. This can be caused by many things, such as something you ate, or viral infection. Avoid spicy or fatty foods, alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. Try pepcid or zantac (ranitidine). If your symptoms don't resolve, see your doctor, as you may need to have an endoscopy to be sure you don't have an ulcer. Hope this helps!
