Bruising: If you find that your are bruising more frequently, then you should discuss this with your doctor and make sure that you do not have anything wrong with the functioning of your blood. You may also want to see a dermatologist to rule out any skin issues.

Have someone look.: Were there dark blue or black spots first? If so, some kind of minor injury (even sex or bike riding or bouncing a baby) might have caused this. You should just have your blood checked to make sure that you are not bleeding/bruising too easily. If they were yellow from the very beginning, it could be something else.

BRUISES: You probably bumped against something without a recolection. the yellow color is part of the resolution of the bruise. first it is purplish redr/blue -black, then green yellow before vanishing- A bruise is a subdermal hematoma .The color is due to the hemoglobin component being broken down. It's nothing to worry about. If you are experiencing easy mucosal bleeding it is more of a worry.
