Discharge from a black bump on the back. Should be concerned?

I have a black bump on my back that looks like a blackhead but is slightly larger. When I squeezed this bump black discharge continued to come out. This bump never popped and had discharge for about 15 minutes. Eventually I stopped and when I woke up in the morning, all the skins surrounding that area on my back was black and scarring. The scarring however was inside of my skin and not raised. What do I do?
