Yes, it should be ok. This was either caused by the weather (some cauliflowers grow slightly purple under cooler or unusually hot conditions) or you could have bought a purple cauliflower (if you did not mean too, it was probably mislabled). Either way, it will not harm you. They are just as edible.
