Blood blister behind finger nail, yellowish thick discharge on squeezing.

I had what looked like a blood blood blister right behind my finger nail on my index finger . I stuck a needle in it to open it up thinking that blood would come out of it but instead it was like a jelly substances in the color of red/ yellowish thick and came out like you were squeezing a tube of tooth paste. It does not hurt and I can t remember hitting it , but I could have.
