In brief: Get checked out!

Have your doctor or urgent care check it out and make the diagnosis.
If you've had same symptoms before with diagnosis then that's probably what it is. Your doctor can give you ear drops to take care if it. No swimming until it clears and keep ears dry. Wear plugs in pool or shower.
