In brief: No

The dark spot could be a small bleed under the nail but if it does not grow out , seek consultation with a podiatrist or dermatologist.

In brief: I don't think so

It may be dried blood from a contusion.
Keep in mind melanoma is in the differential diagnosis so it would pay to visit a foot doctor for an exam.

In brief: Exam

Would recommend evaluation by your doctor. Certain skin neoplasms can develop on the nail-bed and at your age i would want my doctor to examine and biopsy if suspicious.
