YES!: Pain &/or bleeding &/or swelling are red flags that there is something dramatically wrong. A small cavity is painless, a large deep cavity is painful as the infection spreads. Don't wait. Call your Dentist now. Could be transient like an erupting wisdom tooth, or could be something chronic and serious. Go for an examination.

Well, yes: Could be a wisdom tooth erupting, could be a deep cavity, could be bruxism. You need to be seen by a local dentist to be evaluated.
