In brief: Possibly
If you are having prolonged pain or discoloration of your finger after a cut, you might be developing an infection.
See your doctor.

In brief: Deep cut finger
Without looking at it, by your description it seems you have a bruise around it, does not seem to be infected, otherwise you will have redness, swelling and puss drainge.
And numbness is not unusual with finger laceration as you loose some superficial nerves . But having said that if the cut is deep, you should have had it looked and put stiches in it.You did not tell how old is the cut.
