Not healing after vaginal delivery

I had my baby on December 15th. My stitches still haven't disolved! I stopped bleeding about 1 week ago but I've noticed blood coming from my stitches...I feel as though they should be healed by now!

Whenever I clench my vaginal muscles (like it you're trying to hold in pee) I get a painful cramping feeling that is only relieved by peeing followed by bending over with my knees to my chest.

Is any of this normal? My post partum visit is January 28th.
