Tooth/gum abscess?

Ok so I was brushing my teeth today and it was a new toothbrush so all the bristles were quite tough and hard. It scraped against my gum and I felt tender and kinda felt around and it felt bumpy compared to the other side. The middle tooth of the photo that I attached is my problem tooth. Itís not painful,I donít get toothache from it but I had to get a filling (obviously lol) over a year or 2 ago and had to go back as it never settled right. Iíve had a look and itís kinda red and seems like thereís a yellow/white bump above it. Is this what an abscess looks like? I moved house last year and am yet to move dentist as mine is half an hour away and this has given me the push to move to the one here and get it checked out. Iím now freaking out Iím gonna need tooth pulled which you canít see it when I smile so not too bothered but the thought of pain/blood/all the pulling of it is making me feel sick
I apologise for the photo of my mouth in advance
