Is this normal? (4 days after extraction)

I had a first molar extraction last Saturday, and the dentist told me all the basic stuff to prevent dry socket, at first I had my gum hole filled with blood and then the clot formed but the last two days I've seen it get smaller and also the color changes.

I don't have pain except that I sometimes feel it throbbing (blood pressure changes maybe?)

It looks good. The color changes indicate reparative epithelial tissue forming. The only signs to watch is pain and swelling.

With a dry socket, you will be very miserable. As long as the hole is covered and you have no swelling, you are fine.
