"Gloom" dark, resulting in "gloomy" adjective, often used as sad or despondent. So it can be used to describe a person or a place.
"Ali was sitting in his gloomy room with a gloomy expression on his face."
I am worried/concerned about you sounds better than gloomy to me.
In spite of personal preferences, I still see “gloomy day, gloomy faces, gloomy news, gloomy predictions” appearing in many a text.
