In brief: Way too soon!

After vaginal deliveries (assuming you had one), the typical advice is to have pelvic rest for about 6 weeks to allow healing.
If you had any vaginal repairs and the sutures have dissolved, there may be some healing that needs to be done that you cannot see. You can apply cold compresses/ ice to the area for any possible swelling and soothing purposes. Nsaids should help too. Call your doctor.
