15 Days Post-Op FUE 3100 hair transplanted, still some oozing noted, should I worry? (Photo)

I had my FUE transplant overseas and got back home 10 days ago. Everything was normal until this morning I noticed that the pillow I slept on had some fluid deposit during the night on few spots (light stains). I've been spraying pure Aloe Vera to the donor site for few days and washing it every day with baby shampoo. Should I not spray aloe. Is this a normal healing process, or is it getting infected? (I realize it is rare for any infection on the scalp due to rich blood circulation). Thanks.
