i have a broken tooth that got infected that i then pulled myself, seems like there is still a small piece left inside the gum. will this be an issue?

Possibly: You removed the broken piece, not the root. The infection has probably not been resolved, and the decay on that remaining piece will surely keep the area inflamed. You should really see a dentist to have the retained root properly extracted.
