In brief: See your dentist

Have your dentist do a proper examination including necessary radiographs.
It can be your wisdom tooth but there may be other underlying causes like TMJ pathology, or salivary gland stones. Your dentist will diagnose the problem and help you decide on the proper treatment for you.

Infection- antibiotics will settle it but generally will need the wisdom tooth extracted.
