you will be fine. just wait it out a few days. assuming everything was sterile, you have a 99.9% chance your just fine. i have noticed with the last few winny shots, some discoloration around the site.....red in color and it gets kinda hot. it subsides in a day or two

Is it bruising? What size pin did you use? Is there a line leading away from the site? Is the site warm? How do you feel right now?

You'll be fine. If the site gets warm and you start running a high temperature - then there should be some concern of an infection.
But 1 1/2 is a bit large for Quads (depending on your size though) - but nice for Glutes. General rule of thumb would be a 1" pin for quads. Also, make sure you don't pull on the pin while it is... you should be able to let go of it and it will be suspended in the air at the same angle you are using to push the plunger...
Try it right after a hot shower (cleans the skin and makes it a little more elastic) and you use alcohol to clean the area before and after...
