I have a bruise on the side of my knee it's yellow with a little bit of purple next to it. I am not sure if it could be a bone bruise or not?

In brief: Healing

as bruises heal they turn all sorts of colors.
the blood in your tissue breaks down, it will eventually fade. don't worry. if not fading over the next week or so, see a doctor
