Belly button tenderness and a pink discharge

I just recently noticed a pinkish discharge oozing out of my belly button which has been draining all day.  My belly button is really sore and irritated especially at the top of my belly button.  I am thin and exercise daily.  No body piercings.  I am not pregnant and my youngerst is almost 8.  Just wondering what would cause this and how should I treat it?  I cleaned it with a q-tip with a little rubbing alcohol and then with an antibotic (antibiotic) ointment, is this safe?  Should I see a Dr.?  Please advise!!!
