If under my toenail it turns black and blue will the nail fall off?

In brief: Not necessarily.

No doubt there has been trauma to the toe and the bruise is trapped under the nail.
Depending on how extensive the bruise is and the pressure it may have caused will make a difference as to whether you'll loose the nail or if it will quiet down after proper first aid.
