Thanks for the question. I would like to have few important details. Any history of injury to the ankle? Any history of diabetes or you are taking any medications such as blood thinners or pain killers? Any leg swelling or pain?

pre-diabetes, no medication.

Blood thinners, yes.

Pain like getting kick in the shin, only minor pain

Thanks for the details. I would like to say that these are serious symptoms which should not be ta***** *****ghtly. There is a high possibility of blood flow obstruction or clot formation in the leg, important to investigate any blood thinners induced complications which can give such sudden bruises or discoloration. It is highly advise to visit ER soon as possible to have examination done by physician in ER along with some tests such as doppler scan of leg, INR levels, bleeding profile, clotting time, full blood count. Early evaluation is highly suggested. Let me know if you have any question. Best wishes.
