Blood clots inhibit the flow of blood through the blood vessels. This will cause blood to accumulate at the site of the clot. Because blood is red in color then the site will also become redder as a result. The presence of blood is not the only reason for the redness, however.

The accumulation of blood in the area can begin to put pressure on the surrounding tissues. This can cause them to become irritated and inflamed, which can also contribute to the redness of the area. The area is also likely to feel warm to the touch, and there might also be a blue color to the skin in the area.
