Brief Answer:
Visit your gynecologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
The pain you had could have been because of yeast infection but now since you have abdominal tightening also it seems you have started having labor pains which will increase over time.
It is not safe to stay home without check up so in my opinion you need to go to your gynecologist for examination at the earliest.
In case you have any other question, please feel free to ask.
