Bumped blood clot with toothbrush

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed Wednesday, everything looked good with minimal pain.

While brushing thursday night, I slightly bumped one of the lower blood clots. I don't think it fell out, but it is definitely disturbed. Small amount of bleeding in the evening, and overnight.

Now when I try to open my mouth - it feels almost like the blood clot wants to come out or is loose? It also sends "shivers" or signals up to my ear. Is the blood clot actually out? Do I have to worry about this?
I feel a pressure specific to the bumped area that isn't present anywhere else. Anytime I swallow or open my mouth too quickly, it feels off - and uncomfortable. But just at the site I bumped
