In brief: Yes

This is something we take care of.
Likely, a piece of your nail will be trimmed or debrided and the underside of the nail can be currents or removed to get a good sample of your nail to send to a lab which will help determine if you have a fungus infection. Discoloration can be secondary to dried blood, bacterial colonization, subungual keratosis (a build up of tissue), etc etc.
