This is not normal but I would venture to say that you may have  a suture working it's way out.go back to your origianl surgeon and he may be able to pluck it out.That's what it sounds like.

Discharge from belly button

The short answer is that it is not normal. There could be many reasons but a simple explantation could be a stitch that is becoming superficial. You need to have an exam to know for sure.
