Default Black and red toe?

I got a new chinchilla about a month and a half ago. Soon after I noticed there was something wrong with her toe. It started to get worse and turn more black and her hind toe is starting to turn red. I don't know what to do or how to treat it. Can somebody help?

It's hard to really tell in the pics, but it could be a broken toe, it could be a blood clot from an injury blocking blood flow, or it could be an infection. I would get it checked out a the vet, especially since you said it's getting worse.
