Could be: It certainly could be an ingrown toe nail, which would cause your toe to be red, swollen, and painful. I would not hesitate to be seen and treated.

Little-toe much pain: Ingrown little toenails don't seem to all that common. More than likely a cellulitis secondary to unappreciated skin trauma. If it persists much longer, you will need to see a specialist for treatment and resolution.
