Could my ear piercing be infected?

okay so I got it done a week ago, January 2. and well a few days ago(like 2) it started to hurt a lot..like more than usual..then I noticed that it got swollen around the area. Oh btw I got my orbital pierced top right of my ear (two piercings?) anyways it got swollen. I put a bit of alcohol in it but then my friend told me that it was bad(she didn't say why) so I'm worried..it feels warm to the touch. could it be infected? and if so what to do? ohh also..it hasn't let go of any discharge..like puss or anything
