In brief: Need magnified exam
Best to see a dermatologist who can examine the bite site under significant magnification to identify if there are some retained mouth parts in the wound, that need surgical removal.
The tick-borne infectious diseases will provide reason for close monitoring of your response to the bite, and possible need for additional blood testing.
