In brief: Jaundice

Liver failure, depending on how rapidly it occurs, will cause fluid in the abdomen(ascites), leg swelling, and a distinct yellow/bronze discoloration of the skin called jaundice.

In brief: Yes

Here are some of the more common signs and symptoms of liver failure: yellowing skin or eyes (jaundice), easily bleeding that doesn't stop in a "normal period" of time, edema or swelling of the legs, expanding abdomen (ascites).
If there are any concerns--see your doctor--lab tests are available to monitor your liver function. Of concern would be why? What are your risk factors? Alcohol?
