Hello. Firstly, you are only 20 year old and wisdom tooth extraction is not generally advised until there is patient discomfort that can not be treated otherwise. Secondly, since you have got it extracted, it is very important to follow the oral hygiene instructions given to you by your doctor as this helps in better and quick healing of the wound. Thirdly, the white thing you are mentioning can be food slough over the wound, but only if it is not excruciatingly paining you.
Next Steps
Any symptoms, then it is good for you to consult a specialist doctor i.e., Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
Health Tips
Do brushing softly and warm saline water rinses every 2-3 hours.

Hi, Go back to your dentist for a review if you are having any discomfort. A surgical extraction takes time to heal. Maintain a good oral hygiene.

If possible kindly attach a picture for the same, also your medical history if any. Sometimes it takes a bit longer for the extraction site to completely heal, no need to worry if there’s no pain alongside.
Next Steps
Do lukewarm saline rinsing thrice a day for 10-15 days for the gums to completely heal.
Health Tips
Do not eat from that side especially anything hard.
