So for the last 4 weeks or so sitting has been (literally) a pain in the butt. Driving, riding, sitting in class, sitting on the couch, etc. I am always having to shift and fidget in order to not sit square. I don't remember any traumatic event that caused this injury. It isn't bad enough to make me take any over the counter painkillers, usually if it starts to hurt too badly I just stand up for a while.
Is it possible that I bruised my tailbone? or something else? Anyone with any experience?

I have a history of something called a pilonidial cyst. (Spelling is likely off). It is a cyst on the tailbone. I have had mine removed 3 times. Mine started with discomfort for a few days to a week before it opened up. When it opened up it is a nasty abcess smelly draining icky thing.
I had no history of injury there prior to the cyst. I had it removed once as a 14 yr old, again at 16 and the last time at age 19. It has been over 20 years since it has recurred.
