My dentist left a root canal open with a cotton type substance to let the infection drain he said to come back in 4 days to get it cleaned again and filled it’s my front tooth.Is it ok to leave it like this.? This is my first root canal so I didn’t know what to expect.

No, get it disinfected under a rubber dam, dry it with paper points, and fill it temporarily with Calcium Hydroxide, cotton, temporary filling. If you dentist does not do any of this, see a different dentist. If you are from a developing country that don't have these resources, the root canal process will fail and you need extraction.
