Should I go to the podiatrist?

So I got shellac nails in July of last year. I got them on my toes. Now somewhere in the remainder of the year I bruised my nail. I barley remember this though. Anyway the polish slowly grows out and on March I noticed a spot/line on my foot. It s brown and it s at an angle. Basically a short line that s bent. Now I worry about everything. I never noticed this before and started googling and getting scary stuff. Now my anxiety is very high and I feel I should go to the podiatrist. My mom says it s a bruise and it will grow out with the nail but it hasn t grown out. I don t know if it s been there all this time or if it appeared in March. I m scared and don t want this to be something serious and I could have caught it early. What should I do?
