In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
