How do I know if my toenail is healing?

HI, I had my toenail removed 3 weeks ago because of an ingrown nail . My toe hurts bad, is slightly swollen and the whole toe is red. Where the nail was, the coloring from top to bottom is red, then gray, and then almost black at the bottom of the nail bed. What should I do? Is it infected or healing? Should it still hurt this much? Thank you for your time.
