Had laproscopic hysterectomy. Have mucus like clear discharge and white pus at incision site. Normal?

I am 46 and am 2 weeks post op from a laproscopic hysterectomy. I have one ovary left and a small part of my cervix. I have felt great this far and just saw my doctor 2 days ago. My first question is that I have a mucus like ,clear discharge ,resembling egg white from a freshly cracked egg,no odor but a slight burn around my vaginal opening, Is this okay? Secondly, the incision in my belly button was moist and left a small white moist scab.When I saw my doctor he cleaned off,now I have a clear white puss that forms in that spot. It has no odor.I am cleaning it with alcohol and bacterial ointment. Is this normal or should I be worried about the discharge in my belly button.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
You are 46 years old. You had laproscopic hysterectomy leaving an ovary and part of cirvix. You had mucous like discharg, no odour but a slight burning around the vaginal opening. An incision in your belly button was moist, and has a white scab.
Whenever there is moisture post operatively suggests some infection. There appears to be an infection.
I advise you to consult your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have culture and sensitivity of the discharge besides other routine tests for confirmation.
Wishing for a quick and comfirtable recovery.
Best regards.
