Leakage after C5 disc surg.

Hi,
I had Surg just over 8 days ago to fix my cracked C5 disc and my recovery was going great.  About two days ago I developed a leak from my incision with a slight fever 100 and small headache.  I started to keep a dressing on it as the leaking is getting to be a large amount, and figured the headache was allergies.  This morning I woke up and put a fresh bandage (waterproof with a large covering) within two hours the bandage burst all over and now I have had to change my bandage every hour because of the amount.  I can even see a new spot that looks like it is going to burst and leak from additionaly.  Should I be worried or is this just part of my recovery?
Thanks
