A warm welcome to HCM

Gone through your problem diligently.
An infection on your belly button (omphalitis) can cause smelly discharge and blood from the navel. A visit to your doctor and an examination will confirm the condition.
And he may start you a local antibiotics and/or a local disinfectant.

Sometimes these features suggests a fistula formed between the GI tract and the navel. But it is a rarity with a 2 days history and in absence of any previous surgery or piercing.

I think i have cleared all your doubts.
All the best. Get well very soon. In case any further querry, you are welcome always.
