Tooth?: This could be due to a tooth starting to go bad. There is three branches of the trigeminal nerve. One that innervates close to your eye, one to your upper jaw, one to your lower. Swelling and pain below your eye is most likely caused by a first bicuspid or a canine. You should see a dentist to rule out an abscess. If it is tooth related you should be able to press on a tooth/ see if it hurts

Wait and watch: You have given very little information. Accordingly reasons could be multiple starting from a bug bite, injury, infection. If it is not bruised there and not warm to touch, and if you have no additional issues like rashes, fever, symptoms of flue, Try taking some tylenol (acetaminophen) as needed bot not to exceed 6/day. If the symptoms do not get better or worsen, go see your doctor.
