In brief: No
This is called a hematoma and will fade over the next week.
It is not dangerous or a signs of any bleeding problem for your pregnancy (since you didn't mention any issues or medication). Next time apply pressure over the site with gauze and fingers for 2-3 minutes and then tape the gauze to continue light pressure over the puncture site. This will minimize the bruising.
