I need to know if my deeper wound is infected or if it's healing like normal. (photo)

I had dropped a cup and had fallen on a broken peice resulting my leg being cut. It didn't show any signs of infection, in fact it looked like it was healing. But today I noticed it was a little bit white in a random area, so I pulled off the scab and the entire wound underneath was white. Is this normal? Or am I suffering from infection.

Cut on the leg requires attention

It does not look infected, but may require some medical attention to avoid further scarring. Once healed, apply Plato's Scar Serum.
