It's possible. Melanoma can grow inwards too, so please see your GP anyway, if you're at all suspicious.
Extremely unlikely to be a mealanoma from your description.

I agree with Chilldoubt.

monitor the situation for a couple of weeks.
I've got a couple of moles which look odd - but the GP says they're not to be worried about at present. OH took a photo of them so we could see if they change shape or consistency. Don't pick it again though, not a good idea.
