In brief: Ok

You have your wisdom tooth erupting.
There may be an infection if you are swollen. Please see a local dentist for evaluation

You likely have pericoronitis from food packing into the gum around the partially erupted tooth. Improved hygiene can help prevent this but most times the definitive tx is extraction of the wisdom tooth. Most doctors will treat the pericoronitis first and then extract the tooth

In brief: Pericoronitis

Your wisdom tooth is trying to erupt.
It is inflammed (pericoronitis). See and oral surgeon. He/she will likely prescribe antibiotics, pain meds and discuss removal oif the tooth/teeth.
