Could I have lockjaw?

I scraped my toe on a piece of metal earlier today, but didn't think anything of it. I wasn't bleeding at the time so I figured everything was fine. When I got back home, though, I noticed that there was a tiny puncture and it had bled. I'm pretty sure it was from a pine needle, but I'm not positive. So now, eight-ish hours later, it's a little hard to swallow. I have been fighting off a cold and my throat is sore, but I usually don't get a stiff neck or find it hard to swallow when I'm sick. So is this lockjaw? I got a tetanus shot two months ago, so I should be good, right?
