This could be many different things. Let us start with the underlying health problems it could be, in the parentheses I will put how to treat it: anemia (eat more iron rich foods, iron supplements), Diabetes, Heart disease, and kidney disease (for all of those please go to a doctor to treat it). It could also be a melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

Some other things it could be: trauma or injury to the toe causing blood vessels to pop, a fungal infection underneath the toenail, if you stubbed your toe recently it might just be a bruise or broken toe. In those cases there is not much you can do. However if you suspect anything is wrong please go to the doctor. I'm not a medical professional and I do-not-know-you personally.
