It pipped a blood vessel. Am I seeing a lot of red staining on the egg? or just that spot above the pip? As long as the chick is still moving and making sounds, I'd not worry. I'd also not intervene in this case even if the chick goes silent for a lengthy time. They need to rest to absorb the yolk and peripheral vasculature.
