Possibly: Have the surgeon who extracted the tooth take a look. In the meantime, bite on a sterile gauze for 15 minutes to help control the bleeding.

Extraction : Most wisdomm tooth extractions are sutured and there may be pink in the saliva up to 24 hours. Just bite ona tea bag and it should stop, if it doesn't go to a doctor asap. If you are getting red in the saliva from active bleeding go to a doctor or hospital immediate.

Normal diet: Blood clots should be well attached at this point and a normal diet which does not include hard crusts or tough bony components should be fine.
