Is this infected yet?

Last night I got a cut on my knee and I cleaned it with water and soap, but I didn't put a bandage over it. this morning a thin, clear, sticky fluid was coming out of it and the skin felt really hot. it was a scrape/cut from sliding in my softball game. is it infected or is this normal? also it hurts to walk and bend my knee, should I take pain killer?

    A painkiller just now,but what you should have done is cleaning this with pure alcohol as disinfection and the hot and red wouldn't have occurred. Soap was the wrong part, that gave you this infection so put the alcohol still on and hopefully it will work..
