Keep an eye on it over the weekend and perhaps get it get checked next week if it seems to be getting worse. Did you complete the treatment for ringworm?

Right now it is too small to and your picture too fuzzy. Keep an eye on it and see how it develops over the coming days. If it grows bigger quickly and develops a white crust, then you are obviously dealing with another round of ringworm.
Here are various pictures of the onset of ringworm as well as detailed hygiene tips: Ringworm: Hygiene And Pictures

But it can also be a small nip, something stuck to hairs has come off pulling the hairs with it or it could be the start of a small growth.
Personally I would not panic yet.
