Need advice asap. Possibly dry socket

I had two bottom molars, side by side, extracted one week ago. There was white stuff over the hole but I rinsed with salt water and the stuff came off. Now my holes are really deep and I see this dark red almost black thing at the very bottom of my hole. Is this dry socket or is it normal? Can I still get dry socket? I'm on no pain at all. I just need to know of this is normal so I can stop worrying.
If you had a dry socket, you would definitely know by the pain you would have. I've had that once and will never forget it. Intense pain.

What you described sounds like normal healing.
