In brief: Possibly

With the recent tooth extraction, i would worry about localized infection.
If the teeth were removed from the upper jaw, this can cause pain over the frontal temporal region of the skull. Best check with your dentist to see if there is any complications from the extraction.

In brief: Some pain expected

It would not be unusual to have pain for several days after wisdom tooth removal but should be relieved with pain medication.
If you are having severe pain, it is possible you have a dry socket, in which case you need to return to the dentist to have it treated.

In brief: Depends

Hard to say without an exam and history.
Get back to or call the dentist/oral surgeon and ask questions.

In brief: Requires evaluation

We can't determine over the internet what's normal and what is not, nor if you require further treatment.
Why can't you go back? Post operative aftercare is usually covered at no charge and the responsibility of the treating doctor. Better to be sure than sorry. Migraines are not usually related to tooth extractions or complications resulting from them.
