Is it okay if you swallow a stitch after getting your wisdom tooth pulled?


I had a wisdom tooth pulled (lower left) four days ago and I was told that today I can begin eating more hard food, slowly though. I had a light lunch and afterwards I felt that one of the stitches (they're NOT dissolvable) was loose. Now it seems that it came completely undone and I swallowed it and I can feel it in my throat! Should I be concerned?
