My 21 month old hit her head on the tile floor and a big knot is on her forehead. Do I need to take her to the doctor?

In brief: Yes
However, children are very resilient and will generally do well after minor traumas.
You should look for neurologic symptoms, such as excessive crying or sleeping, intractable vomiting, or irregularity in the pupils or bulging of her soft spot. Any of those should prompt you to bring her to the er immediately.
