I have no idea if they will admit you to the hospital, but if you really have an injury like this and if there is red around it, yes go to the hospital ER. The red area is a sign of infection. They may give you an IV antibiotic and then a prescription and let you go home, but will likely tell you to see your own doctor, too.
You'll have to go and find out. I wouldn't screw around with something like that.

Pus is a sure sign of infection and that needs treatment. See your regular doctor first if possible, but go straight to urgent care or er if you cannot get an appointment within 48 hours.

Urgent Care would be a better choice than the ER.
