    It is call "pus"- "a thick yellowish or greenish opaque liquid produced in infected tissue, consisting of dead white blood cells and bacteria with tissue debris and serum."

    The red is blood from capillaries in the area.  Clean it (including squeezing the pus out) and put some anti-biotic ointment on it.  Basically treat it like any other wound that has some surface infection.

    Clean it with peroxide and put antibiotic cream on it and leave it alone.
