Did I accidentally give myself gangrene?

I fell asleep with a wrist brace on too tight. When I woke up seven hours later, my hand was swollen and tight. There is no discoloration. My hand is still a bit stiff and numb. When I press down on my skin, color fills in the white. My skin is a bit red in spots from under the bandage. Should I be worried? What should I look out for?
