In brief: Dr. should evaluate
A doctor or a dentist can evaluate a problem in the teeth, gums, or cheeks (although a dentist is likely the better choice for teeth and gums problems).
Pus in the cheeks usually means some infection, and the doctor may prescribe antibiotics. If the infection spreads, it may go throughout the face, and more seriously, maybe into the sinuses and towards the brain. Getting treatment is wise.

In brief: Dental abscess
This sounds like an abscessed tooth or gum. See a dentist and get it looked at.
