You have to wear hand wraps UNDER the gloves. You can buy them at any sporting good store or order from online. These are mandatory for any hitting the bag. They help keep you wrist, thumb and knuckles from getting injured.
You have likely strained a tendon in your hand. it is very common. You need to lay off of hitting with it for at least a week to see if it improves, if it does not improve you should see a doctor.
