Bleed and pus from belly button

I've been bloated the last 4 days and have had a very sore belly button, yesterday I noticed blood and pus in my belly button aswell as being red and the same thing today aswell. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same thing, I have no idea what it is, it seems very strange to me.

I am not a medical person but until someone more knowledgeable gets back with you, from my experience usually swelling and pus and redness equals an infection of some sort.  If I were you I would see a doctor just in case.

I agree with 123Anna.  Is it also painful or have an odor of some sort?  If you get too many germs there, it can cause an infection.  You could possibly have a cyst there as well.  https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319864.php  That talks about infection and cysts as probably the most likely reasons for your belly button discharge, pus and bleeding.  I think I'd go see a doctor to find out which of the two it is and what your next step should be.
