Thumbnail injury

Patient: On Dec.17 I partially caught my right thumb in a car door.Today only a sliver of skin in front of the nail bed is purple and the nail looks fine.Will it get worse and then need that relieving pressure treatment ? It does not hurt and dont see any blood under the nail bed …yet.
