Infant blue nail beds

Blue nail beds right next to the cuticle in infant 7 days old. Had a well baby check today and everything was fine. Noticed the discoloration this evening. Taking baby to the Doc tomorrow to have his oxygen levels checked. Anything else I should do? He was 2.5 weeks early and born by emergency C-Section with the chord around his neck.
