In brief: See general dentist

Make an appointment for an evaluation with your general dentist so they can help you figure out what is going on.
In the mean time rinse with warm salt water 3-4 x daily, to help keep the area clean and avoid spicy foods.

In brief: Distal pocket

The common complication after the wisdom tooth removal is a periodontal pocket behind the adjacent tooth.
See you dentist or an oral surgeon for the dental x-ray(s), probing and further exploration.
