Pea size lump, middle of neck, tender to touch, skin is red. Infected lymph node?

I woke up 3 days ago with a hard, pea-size lump right in the middle of my neck where my Adam s apple would be. It becomes tender if I touch it too much or press on it and the skin is red. It looks like it may have a white substance underneath. Is this a cyst or possibly an infected lymph node? Is there anything I can do for it? Thanks!
