Have been exercising but recently I have developed a dull pain on my shin and the muscle next to it. Also have a small bruise? Is this a blood clot?

In brief: No

By blood clot, I assume you mean the dangerous kind that breaks off and goes to the lungs.
That does not present like this. However, the blood from a bruise clots also, it just doesn't have the same dangerous potential.
