hellow,
as you gave the detail,it seems that wisdom tooth is erupting,because of food impaction in that area,infection is there.so you have pain in that tooth.and you said you are pregnant too,so i will suggest you please clean that area properly,use warm saline gargles and take paracetamol.you can take amoxilline 500mg,but consult to your gynecologist once.
nothing to get worried.
take care
