I'm not sure what is it gathering under and between the breasts?

Something gathering between the breasts - Swelling?
This may be concerning to you, but without pictures and an in-person exam, it will be very hard to tell what you may be looking at. It could just be rippling, but you describe that you feel “gelish liquid inside…and it moves.” You also say that it is gathering as if it is getting bigger, so I may guess that it may be a seroma (fluid collection under the skin).
As you are early in the recovery period, the any other type of swelling is normal. Any surgery, breast augmentation included, creates swelling that will take time to resolve. The more extensive the surgery, the longer for the swelling to settle. In our practice we generally tell our patients that they should wait a month before 95% of the swelling is gone and at that time they can go out and by new bras. Until then there is swelling that needs to resolve, and the implant settles down.
My recommendation is to follow-up with your board-certified plastic surgeon and let them have a look. Their advice and instructions should take precedence over anything else you read here.
Hope this helps.

Post Op Concerns
Swelling does increase over the first few days post op. You will need to contact your Plastic Surgeon to ask about the specific dressings and status of your breasts.
All the best
