A lot of people like to pop pimples because it makes them pretty much instantly go away. The problem is that popping pimples can cause scarring. My doctor told me this so I know it's true. I had bad acne when I was younger, really bad, and she told me never to pop my pimples because it could cause scarring.
The best thing to do is to let it go away on it's own. You can put tooth paste on it at night to dry it out, but don't pop it. You can also use toner to help keep skin clear and free of dirt. Use an ex foliating face wash to get rid of dead skin and dirt. These will help keep pimples away.
You will still get the odd pimple, but they do eventually go away.
The red mark may go away in a week or so. Just keep it clean. What probably happened was that when you popped it, the skin became irritated and bled a little. This is normal when a pimple breaks. Just make sure you keep it clean.
