In brief: Oral hygiene

and see a dentist ASAP.
Gum infection can further spread to other parts of the body like jaw bones, palate and throat. It also can result in systemic infection. Therefore, dental treatment is a must.

In brief: Pus

Pus means infection.
If your Dentist is unable to locate the cause it may be time to see Oral Surgeon, Periodontist, Endodontist, and/or ENT. Infection needs immediate treatment.
