What should the color of a healing tooth extraction blood clot look like, I got my tooth extracted 2 days ago and it's a white an yellow color?

Speak with dentist. If you have any concerns, see the dentist that performed the extraction. It probably is healing fine. Speak to the dentist and see if an antibiotic is in order.
White is normal. in the mouth a healing cut or sore will be white. A similar scab on the skin would be a dark red to black. What you describe is normal healing. Do not disturb the extraction site. .

Had tooth extraction and the socket has like a whitest plug in the middle of it kinda over the blood clot. Is just the gum healing or is it infection?

Maybe just food part. Plaque can form in a short period of time. Don't rinse or gargle if you are in the first 24 hours. Dislodging the blood clot can lead to a dry socket which is extremely painful an doesn't show up immediately after the clot is lost but rather 2 to 7 days later. After 24 hrs it is safe to return to normal activities. Read more...
