Black, rice-like thing came out of a pimple.

Patient : Ok. So I'm about 13 years old and I found a pimple on my neck. It was a normal colored pimple (pinkish). It was bigger than some pimples but not huge. It kinda hurt when I touched it. So I decided to pop it. When I was popping it, I noticed a small black thing come out. It was black, rice-shaped but smaller than rice, and had a little white around it. What is it? Should I be worried? Is it normal? It hurts now as well. When I touch it, it hurts a bit. Not too much though. Anything I should pre-caution? Help.
