Many causes for discolored nails: infection n(bacterial, viral, fungal),frostbite, auto-immune disease, trauma, neoplasia (cancer), and bizarre breed specific diseases.

I would make an appointment with your veterinarian to gather further information about the color change.

Your vet will pursue history, current drug use and diet along with a physical exam and possibly diagnostics to find an answer. There are too many possibilities for me to give you a simple answer.
