In brief: Wait a little bit

If it is a traumatic bruise of some sort it should disappear in a couple of weeks at the most.
If it persists beyond that, get it evaluated by a dentist or PCP to make sure it isn't serious. If it disappears, it was most likely the result of trauma.

In brief: Not sure

May be traumatic lesion or may be one of many other things.
Generally, if healed and gone within 2 weeks you don't have to be concerned. If still there at the end of 14 days, ask your Dentist to take a look.
