Hello, I am 15 years old, i got hit by hockey stick in my chest.

Patient: Hello,I am 15 years old. When I was playing Hockey I got the end of someone’s hockey stick in my chest just above my chest protector. In a few hours the skin turned yellow and has stayed like that for days. Should I wait it out or go to a Doctor? I have no pain or symptoms, but it just looks wierd.Thanks,
