Yes: Your inflammatory cells come in to take care of the bite and this causes swelling and warmth. This should subside in a day or two --if not i would be concerned about an infection--see your family doc.

My one side tonsil is mid-big n when I touch it it hurts a little?

One tonsil hurts: It is not unusual for one tonsil to get inflammed, infected and enlarged. Inflammed or infected tonsils can hurt and you can experience pain or difficulty while swallowing. Have your primary provider examine you. They may want to do a throat culture to rule out a bacterial infection.
