I have a v-shaped bluish-purple mark on the back of my neck, about 1" large. Is this cause for concern?

I slept crooked on Saturday night and woke uip Sunday with a very sore neck. Throughout the day, my neck continued to hurt (up near where it meets my head) and it hurt to look up or side to side. I also had a tension headache and felt nauseous throughout the day (not a hangover thought).
Yesterday I was still vaguely nauseous in the morning and my neck hurt, but less.
Today, I still have residual soreness when I try to look up or to the side. Normally I would just chalk this up to a REALLY bad night's sleep but my mother noticed a purplish-blue mark on the back of my neck near my shoulders. It doesn't hurt when pushed.
Here is a picture. Here is another
It is not raised or bumpy. I normally wouldn't even really notice this but a) it accompanies neck pain and b) you don't mess with the neck, makes me a bit nervous.
Does anyone recognize what this could be?
