Brief Answer:
No intervention needed. Need not bother about it.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and have checked the attached image. I understand your concerns. As you should know, there are bacteria on our skin and occasionally they cause boils. You possibly got such a boil. The bacteria could have infected a sebaceous gland (the glands secreting an oily secretion called sebum). You need not squeeze out the contents. Just leave it as it is and do not bother. Repeated squeezing could make it worse by making the infection spread. In the present condition you may apply some antibiotic ointment like neosporin or mupirocin. You could also leave it alone and not bother. I do not suppose that it will worsen.

Just keep the area clean and dry and things would be fine.

Let me know if I could help further.
