Could be normal: ...Though a cyst on ovary is a possibility. If this goes away soon, you can probably expect it won't return.
Dr. Neeoo Chin

Possible cyst: What you're describing may possibly be a corpus lutein cyst. This forms after ovulation and may remain even when the period starts. This is a benign condition and will resolve itself.
