In brief: Infection

Probability is that you have infection of tooth/teeth, gums, or both.
Can't diagnose or treat this over the computer. This is not a DIY problem. Do what you would do if you had a severe infection anywhere else in your body, seek immediate professional help. Call your Dentist for an emergency appointment. Don't put it off.

Anytime you have a toothache, you should consult a dentist for at least A limited exam which will usually include Xrays

In brief: See a dentist ASAP

Toothache associated with white spots should not be ignored, because it can be a significant risk to your tooth and your health.
See a dentist for examination, x-rays and treatment. Do not delay, bad tooth ache will not go away on its own.
