Not unusual: Pain should continue to decrease with time. If not, or there is swelling or heat, see your dentist.

Wisdom teeth: You had surgery. Takes time to heal. By this point you should be feeling a little better every day. If not improving, if areas feel hot, or swollen, or are producing foul odor, or if you are running a fever, return to your Oral Surgeon. Keep mouth scrupulously clean, eat soft high-protein diet, and call your surgeon if you are even the least bit concerned.
