In brief: Ankle sprain.
Yes it is quite possible to have associated small ( or chip ) fracture with it.
An x-ray of the ankle will help exclude a fracture.

In brief: Yes
Stop walking on it, elevate it, and get an x-ray.
It will improve sooner if you stop walking on it whether or not it's broken, so go somewhere you can get it wrapped and splinted properly after the x-ray. Good luck!
