In brief: Normal

Normal. Clot breaking down.
No trouble unless increases pain. If pain increased see oral surgeon for possible dry socket.

In brief: Go see dentist

If you're not In pain it's most likely food that's trapped and rotting under your gums.
Go see your dentist to have them take a closer look and potentially clean out that area
