is this burn infected?

days ago a small piece of burning plastic bag got on my right ring finger. It left a little hole maybe 1mm deep and size of a pencil eraser (maybe even smaller) and it didn't hurt much, if at all.. and no blister either. I cleaned it, put antiseptic spray on it and put a bandaid which I changed every day. Now, it formed a yellow scab over and I'm worried does that mean that it's infected. There is no growing redness, discharge, pain or smell, in fact it looks like it's getting smaller, but it still worries me that it's yellow.

I took a picture of it, here is the link..
