In brief: Well, it is...

If u fell and pulled your hamstring tendon( most probable) or adductor muscle / tendon.
Ecchymosis( black and blue discoloration ) is normal after you ' pull' or tear a muscle / tendon as it bleeds in the muscle and sq tissue. Rice( rest, ice, comp. Elevation ) is appropriate first 24-48 hrs. See your pcp for evaluation .Good luck!
