Possible dry socket?

I had my two lower wisdom teeth removed yesterday under general anaesthetic with stitches as they were quite severely impacted. after waking up, drinking a glass of water, I said to the nurse that I could feel as if the clot had dislodged a bit and she said it has a little bit but it should be fine and settle down in the night. I have only drank water and eaten luke-warm broth and will swill with salt water later tonight. I think I’m being paranoid but can anyone say if this looks like a dry socket? I’m so scared of getting one!

I am in pain now but I know it’s just post-surgical pain and normal swelling.
