I had my lower back wisdom removed on Tuesday as it was giving me severe pain and it was really broken down. It's now Saturday and I have a really horrible taste in my mouth, there's a slight ache but nothing horrendous, does this look like dry socket and will it heal its self?

No, dry socket is exposed bone inside. The discoloration is reparative epithelium and is normal. Lower molars can be more traumatic to remove and will need more time and more body's effort to heal.
