Wisdom tooth hole: There is no way to make a diagnosis without a visual and clinical exam. Make an appointment for a post-op exam with your dentist or oral surgeon.

No: You just dislodged part of the clot with your toothbrush. If there's more bleeding, bite on some clean gauze.Try to avoid the area and just gently rinse until it heals. It sounds like everything is going well.
