In brief: Always a reason

There is always a reason - you may just not remember anything happening to the thumb.
If no pain and movement is ok, then you can certainly just watch, elevate and see what happens. If the thumb is bothering you in any way, then you should be concerned and have it checked out. Body parts don't discolor and swell for no reason.
