In brief: Cyst

Could be a bartholin's gland cyst or infection - though the latter is really painful.
Could also be an area that bled. You can try sitz bathes - sitting in a tub of warm water for 15+ minutes several times a day. If it's painful get seen. If it doesn't start getting smaller get seen.
