Discoloration of thumbnail

Patient : Hi there! I hope your day is going well! So, this is a fingernail question. Up until a month ago, I was a chronic nail biter. I finally stopped myself when I chewed my thumbnail down to the nub. It is growing back now, slowly, but there is a slight discoloration - yellowish? I can't tell if it is under the nail or it is the nail. It hurts slightly when I put pressure on it. The nail is not discolored or distorted.
Symptoms:  Discolored thumb nail
