In brief: Yes, if worse

It sounds like your clavicle is treated with a sling or "figure-8" brace.
It is common for these fractures to move early on with minimal activity. Your swelling is common and burning sensation is related to nerve irritation. If you are at all concerned or your symptoms are significantly worse, it is worth returning to your doctor.
