In brief: Have it checked

What you describe is a condition known as onychocryptosis or ingrown toenail.
The symptoms can vary from very mild to severe depending on how long it has been present. It occurs when part of the nail penetrates the skin, which can often result in an infection. The treatment includes antibiotics, and removal of the offending part of the nail. See a dermatologist or podiatrist for evaluation.
