I realize a bump down there where they stitched me up, Would it be infected ?

I just gave birth about 3 weeks ago. The doctor had to stitch me up. As of now my bleeding had stopped, but a couple days ago I realize a bump down there where they stitched me up. In between of my vagina and the other hole. About the size of a pea. Would it be infected? I cleanse everyday...
