 I had a cyst for 2 weeks and I popped it yesterday. I made sure it was all out and now the whole bump has a black or grayish space around it, is this normal? If so, will it be there forever?

Its called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and don't worry, its not permanent. They do take a while to fade though, but you can speed up the process with a retinoid or AHA or hydroquinone. If you're really concious about it, speak to a dermatologist. If its only slightly bothering you, I'd recommend the acne.org AHA as spot treatment.
