A few things: You could have bit your tongue, there maybe a salivary gland issue in this area or a growth may be present. I hope you don't have any fractured or sharp teeth that could bruise your tongue. See a dentist for an evaluation.

Unclear: It could be a capillary/small blood vessel. Could also be a small polyp. You should have your primary doctor examine you.
