Do I have DVT or any other vascular problems?

I'll start off by saying I occasionally use intravenous drugs which is a health risk right there, I'm a semester from med school so I've witnessed how to hit a vain plenty of times and can do it fairly well. This occasion I happened to missed my vein & now the site is swollen, bruised, & painful.

No doctor, is it red?
