The red either means they are bleeding a bit (which is fine) or that removing the shed irritated them a bit (which is also fine). The black may mean that this area has had poor circulation due to the shed and isn't viable. Part of a toe may fall off. This isn't ideal, but it's not a tragedy. Keep getting the stuck shed off as it happens and your gecko should do OK.
