Symptoms of a deep vein thrombosis in the calf ( clot in deep vein) would include pain and swelling of the calf/ leg...more often some redness . It usually hurts to lift the affected foot up (Homan's sign)
A DVT usually does not occur unless there is some RISK FACTOR ...prlonged rest such as recovery from surgery or illness .Prolonged sitting can be a risk.

No it does not sound like your situation is due to a blood clot. The sense of swelling of both legs while on your feet a lot today sounds that you may have a degree of venous insufficiency...( leaky valves of veins which are about every 10 cm in the large veins coming up the legs) This may cause your legs and feet to swell a bit and feel achy especially with prolonged standing ...this sounds more of a fit to what you describe.Rest and elevate the legs and the swelling should improve.
The lack of discoloration is reassuring and the history of how it developed does not fit a likely blood clot scenario. So - NO I don't think that you need to go to the ER
I hope that this is helpful for you

The burning sensation may be due to the selling.. I have seen people whom may have a day of unusual exertion too and at times exces sweating may alter electrolytes.. low potassium , low sodium, low magnesium may contribute to a burning sensation..
I more think that the swelling itself may affect the nerves. Since it sounds that it started today then i expect it will resolve soon as well .. the nerves to the legs and feet may be affected by swelling as well...
I expect that as you rest and elevate the legs that it will probably resolve in short time as well...
I hope that this is helpful. let me know if you have further concerns. Take care,
Also if on your feet more today then just muscle strain may be the reason for aches of the calf areas...
Typo above ---swelling ....( not selling )
