Removing stitches

Hello I got 8 stitches in my knee 2 weeks ago.   It has fully scabbed over and covering 2 of the stitches and I'm wondering do I remove the scab?   The knots are in/under the scab.  The other 6 we're very easy.  The gash was deep so I'm nervous of removing the scab for infection.  I'm on antibiotics and have been for 2 weeks.  What do I do?
