Thanks for posting your query.
Dark yellow pus learking out of wound is not normal , it shows infection.
It needs antibiotics course after pus culture and sensetivity. It might requie incision and drainage. I suggest you to get medical attention soon.
Hope this will helps you
Wishing you good health.
