In brief: See specialist today

Go see foot and ankle specialist today.
There a a number of things that could cause the calf pain. Need to rule out gastroc/soleus tear versus dvt. Xrays, MRI and/or diagnostic venous ultrasound may be in order. The findings will dictate your course to recovery.

In brief: Have it evaluated

Possible cause of your pain may include sprain, bursitis, fracture, contusion, neuritis, or a blood clot, but of course there are a multitude of other possibilities.
Get the feet inspected by a professional to determine the cause of the problem, as treatment varies depending on the diagnosis.

In brief: Elevate and ice

Pain after a sprain comes from swelling.
Elevation and ice are the best way to control it. If you have not been seen by a doctor you should get an xray to make sure it's just a sprain.
