In brief: Immediately
If you have truly torn the muscle in your calf, you should see your doctor right away.
The longer you wait, the more difficult repairing the torn muscle will be.

In brief: Now
You are at greater risk for venous thrombosis.
You should seek medical assistance immediately and possibly have testing and an ultrasound done. It may be a more dangerous condition than a "torn calf muscle".
