Finger caught in car door. Yellow pus leaking from liquid bandage. Is it infected?

I caught my finger in car door and it produced a deep cut/crush injury. Went to emergency room to have it treated. They washed the wound with a saltwater/ saline solution and covered it with liquid bandage . They also xrayed(negative for breakage) It has been a day and a half and there is a little yellow pus leaking from the liquid bandage. Is it infected? Should I return to have it checked again?
