Is my Shin Bone broken from a sports injury?

Ok, so a couple days ago, in gym class, I was playing field hockey with my friends. I was hit really hard in the shin with a stick. I immediately grabbed my shin and fell to the floor. I put an ice pack on it for about 15 minutes then played another 3 minute game. (I didn't touch the ball much since I was goalie.) But now it still hurts. It looks like a little scratch with a small slightly pink area surrounding it. But it hurts whenever I walk, run, jump or even just stand on it for too long. It hurts REALLY BADLY when you touch it. So, is it broken?
