In brief: Probably not

Bruise! but watch for swelling below knee as sign of venous obstruction in thigh.
Ice early, heat later, after3-4 days. If whole leg swollen, see doc and get duplex.

In brief: Hematoma

If hematoma is small, it would resolve itself.
If it is large and hard, please see your doctor for physical examination, large hematoma is evacuated. Have doppler of lower extremity, to be 100% sure, that there is no clot. See your doctor. Thanks.
