I find a hot bath with some Epsom salt in it helps any kind of soreness.
Little pains like this happen to runners from time to time. If the pain isn't too bad, just rest it and give it a chance to heal. In all likelihood it will be fine in a week. If the pain gets worse or doesn't resolve, then consider seeing a sports medicine podiatrist who will be able to examine your foot and talk with you about it face-to-face.  Good luck!
