In brief: Very possibly
It depends on whether you were doing anything that might have made it more likely to have a blood clot, your family history, and whether you have any risk factors for blood clots.
Also is there anything else it could be. If, with all that information and the appearance of your leg, it looks like you are at risk, then the doctor will test you to see if you have a dvt. Bottom line: see a doctor.
