Pain and whitish bump in the eye. Using contact lens. Infection?

Hi. I m a usual contact-wearer, and they usually go in without a problem. For the past few days, my left eye has felt really painful and torn. When I took my contacts out previously, I noticed a small white-rimmed bump on my upper waterline, seeming to be filled with puss. Is it perhaps because of my contacts? Or is it normal?

It's not normal. It's suggestive of severe inflammation.
Discontinue your contact lens and see your eye doctor before you can start antibiotic steroid to rule out any fungal/other infection.
