Unhappy Help.. Tooth was pulled and WON'T STOP BLEEDING!!

I had a tooth (bottom right) pulled 3 hours ago, and it is still bleeding. I've been biting down with gauze over the empty socket, but I have to say that I don't think it's helping much!! My mouth it literally filling with blood every 20 minutes, and I don't know what to do. This isn't normal, is it? I've heard that after biting for about 45 minutes, bleeding should either stop or significantly decrease.

I've read about Dry Socket, but I'm not sure if this is what I have.. It seems too early to tell. Plus that condition seems to pair with unbearable pain. Don't get me wrong, I AM in pain, but it's mild-moderate pain... So... I don't know. I'm going to ride it out until tomorrow morning. If it's still going by then, I will absolutely call my dentist.

But if anyone reads this soon, do you have any advice for me? This is so uncomfortable
