Can you rupture part of your tonsil?

I don't feel sick at all but I woke up this morning with a tickle in my throat and when I swallowed I felt a pop sensation in my ear. I went to go look in the mirror at  my throat and one side it looked like I have either broken a blood vessel in my or ruptured part of my tonsil... They are always enlarged since I had mono in about 15 years ago. I also used to deal with tonsil stones a bit.. but not recently.

Both sides are still enlarged and I have bumps on the back part of my tounge. just on the one side of my right tonsil it seems to be filled with blood. I put a Qtip to it to see and blood came off on the swab. What is this?
