Post tooth extraction

I had my pre molar (#13) pulled 4 days ago and had a bone graph. I was never in any pain or dicomfort. I have notice last night that a black hole was developing in the middle of my bone graph. I have not been able to seen any bone inside it is just dark. Today I have seen that the extraction site has developed a white mucous over it ans some of the stitches. I do not have any of the symptons of dry socket. Is this normal? Should I clean the mucous off?

I really dont know what to say about this, but kinda sounds like a normal healing process.. I def wouldnt clean any mucous off.. Maybe you should gently rinse your mouth out with warm salty water and try to contact your dentist to see if everything is ok..
