In brief: Could be Raynaud's
Raynaud's phenomenon is a symptom caused by constriction of small blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes, leading to a lack of nutrients and oxygen going to the fingers and toes.
Raynaud's phenomenon can be due to auto-immune disorders, hormonal imbalances, medication effects, etc... A primary care doctor, endocrinologist, or rheumatologist can evaluate and start treatment as needed.

In brief: Could be serious
In addition to raynaud's, if all four extremities are involved at the same time, the blue hands and feet need to be evaluated.
It could be your heart. If you have addtional symptoms, like fatique, shortness of breath, improvement with rest, heart murmur then talk with your doctor and ask about a cardiac echo exam.
