Does it hurt at all or have any other issues?

A gentle rinsing of the mouth may help to remove any food debris but it sounds like its just healing normally. A blood clot at this stage is a little unusual but it may be more trauma than anything else.  You can have your dentist look at it first prior to the oral surgeon.  If its hurting though, you may want to contact the surgeon and get it checked sooner
