48 hours ago I had my bottom left molar extraction, it was double rooted, and I’m noticing a mainly white but slightly yellow layer on top of the extraction sight. Is this normal I should I be worried ?

The varied colored top layer is reparative epithelium. Make sure you don't have any swelling. The mouth has high healing potential.
Thank you so much for the reply ! I’ve woke up today to the swelling around my cheek going down significantly, so I’m gonna assume it’s doing okay ! Also after an x-ray of my teeth , literally all my teeth are double rooted , will this not make the recovery process longer ?

Good day

As honestDoc said -you should be fine. Just keep the area as clean as possible and healing should progress normal
