I had a deep cleaning done today and after a few hours I noticed something gooey on my tooth. I saw that it was a blood clot so I pulled it out. I was so scared at the time but looked some info up about it and saw that it was normal? But I still wasn't sure if I should leave it there. Another blood clot has formed in the same area. Do I leave it there? And why has it formed? I had my left side deep cleaned a few days ago and there was no blood clots. I was kind of scared.

Perfectly normal after a deep cleaning. That side may have needed a bit more work and caused a little more bleeding. You can rinse your mouth out with a salt water rinse to remove them.
