My wort was properly cooled down to less than 80 before I pitched the yeast and I still had krausen coming out of the airlock. I think if you pitch the yeast at high temps you run the risk of killing the yeast. But then again I'm just a noob.

I really haven't popped the airlock yet because it has stopped squealing and started bubbling again, but im keeping a close eye on it...

Yes fretsforlife ,
I have the same exact setup and if you can believe it mine was more swollen. I took the airlock out and cleaned it up good, then put it back and kept a close eye on it. I had no more problems after that. Go ahead take it out and clean it.
