Erupting tooth tissu: Without looking at you clinically, the tissue could be hyperkeratotic tissue secondary to either trauma from the opposing tooth, or simply pericoronitis associated with the erupting third molar (wisdom tooth). Either way, you should visit your dentist to have it looked at. Removal of the wisdom tooth would be a prudent course of action to follow.
