In brief: Mall waking

First i applaud you for doing something to stay fit.
If you have lingering pain that is your body speaking to you, it is not normal. Get your foot checked for stress fracture or bone bruise. I hope it's nothing but better to get checked.

In brief: Foot pain

Pain is not normal.
If you feel it's lingering even if no swelling nor bruising, pain is your indication you need to see a doctor. I'd recommend asking about possible contusion to the location foot. You may need an xray to rule out other pathology. I hope this helps.

In brief: Since

Since the pain is not improving after a few weeks and appears to be affecting your activity and lifestyle, you should be examined by a doctor sooner rather than later. I would start with your general practitioner since they may have a more broad-based view of what could be causing your pain.
Hopefully, the sooner you see someone, the sooner you can be on the road to recovery.
