Is my rook piercing infected or just normal healing procedure?

I got my rook done on tuesday, everything went fine with the piercing and place was clean etc etc. My ear has begun to swell and go a bit red, it is also very sore and hurts all the way around the ear not just where the piercing is. Does this mean there is an infection or is this just normal? I had my tragus pierced earlier this year, and that became extremely infected to a point where I couldn't eat or sleep, Im worried that this is going to happen again.
