You'll know if you get dry socket as more often than not, it is accompanies by excrutiating pain. The fact that the skin is white may not be a bad thing - it could be the healthy skin trying to cover the extraction sight (Most new skin is white/light pink. It will take time to match the coloring of the rest of your gums). As far as not eating, start with soft foods (Ice cream, Popsicles, mashed potatoes, etc.) and work your way up from there. If you still can't eat in a few days, I'd head back in to the dentist and see if there is some sort of problem.
