Bartholin gland, or.: It is either an infected Bartholin's gland or hair follicle bump depending upon its' location. A GYN MD can exam you and make the correct conclusion.

Abscess: It sounds like you have an abscess, an infection in the skin or a gland that is filled with pus. You should be seen it may need further draining and antibiotics.

Bartholin's cyst: The most likely cause is a Bartholin's cyst. The two Bartholin's glands lie next to the entrance to the vagina. They make a small amount of mucus-like fluid. A fluid-filled swelling (a cyst) sometimes develops from a blocked duct that drains the fluid from a Bartholin's gland. Sometimes a gland gets infected, which may then develop into a collection of pus (an abscess).
