Hi Dear,
From your description it looks like you are perhaps having a hematoma in your vagina. Although they occur at the site of stitches, but spontaneous hematomas do occur during normal delivery.
Other reason could be infection of the bartholin gland present at the same site as you are describing and give rise to the above symptoms.
Both these conditions require immediate care.
Kindly see your doctor as early as possible.
