if you unplug a thumb drive before ejecting it, it can break. if you have tryed a couple different os and linux there is a software call test disk https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
dont be afraid just follow the instructions on the website, if this dosent see the partition you may want to consult a vendor that recovers data, if you have important information.
to eject from operating systems there will be an icon it the tool tray bottom right, linux will have the icon in fiesystem, or my computer
