Check it out: It is not unusual to bump yourself and not remember or notice until you see a bruise or feel pain. I have had this experience from exercise, or even house cleaning if I am not paying attention. Since the bruise has faded, you. Ignt give it a bit more time to watch for improvement. Try to recall when it happened. If it is still bothering you or gets worse again, go see your PCP.
