Is it normal to have brownish liquid with saliva after wisdom tooth extraction?

I just got one of my upper wisdom teeth removed. There is a brownish/reddish liquid that is mixed with my saliva. There is no pain or excessive swelling. It has been a period of one day. I have been following the wash procedures (salt water) and maintaining a liquid/soft diet. As well as brushing. Is there any need for a concern?

Hello, Welcome Thanks for consulting HCM,
I have gone through your query, you have undergone wisdom tooth extraction approx one day ago dont worry brownish saliva may bedue to betadine pack given you after extraction and as you have said that there is no pain in socket , no swelling so not to worry do warm saline gargle two - three times a day , take proper medication prescribed by your dentist.
Hope this will help you.
Wish you good health.
