Yesterday I bit my lip and it doesn't hurt and I didn't even think it was that bad but now I have a spot that is purple. What can I do to make it go?

In brief: Tincture of time

Sounds like you may have broken some blood vessels.
Black & Blue marks in mucosal tissues appear purple. It will gradually resolve. If still present in 10 days-2 weeks, see your Dentist.
