Back of tooth & roots left after extraction?

F,50, a former smoker, had an upper molar pulled on 3 days ago. It held firm.

I felt the roots of the hole immediately after. Later, I found that there was a bit of bone on my side (arrow), and the back of what I thought was my tooth (enclosed red).

But now my gum has enclosed the hole but I can definitely feel its unsettled & the tooth piece is driving me crazy.

I’m swishing salt rinse & have no fever…

Is this urgent? If antibiotics are not urgent now, I’ll wait until Monday.
