Regarding the first photo, is that thing in the back normal? I have no pain on the other side (second pic) but still have pain on the side with that thing...does anyone know what it is?

I wasn't given any advice related to cleaning the extraction areas except for a mouth rinse.

That "thing" is normal epithelial repair tissue. I would stop using any rinses especially mouth rinse. Mouth rinse can chemically irritate and you shouldn't agitate the healing area for now. Just avoid having any debris in that area and it should close up in a few days.
