It seems that you are having abcess below your neck.Its a infection ,not related to pregnancy
Get blood investigations done and consult surgeon for incision and drainage of this under antibiotic cover. Only taking out pus will cause refilling again what uoy are mentionong.
Pus culture and sensitivity is necessary after drainage.
