Question
my white 2 month old pot belly pig has a red swollen vulva and it's been like that for over a week --  is she alright.

Answer
I am not a veterinarian and can not make a medical diagnosis over the internet. Your pig is a little bit young to be experiencing her first heat, but it's possible. If so, the redness and swelling should disappear very soon. If they do not, she may have a urinary or uterine infection, and will need to see a veterinarian for medicine.
