My belly button was becoming smelly and sticky in this summer? (Photo)

I'm 10 months post timmy tuck and I saw 2 black dots in the scar of my belly button. My belly button was also becoming smelly and sticky like before my surgery. I got some tweezers and I managed to pull this out. I'm just wondering if it a stitch left behind.

looks like something from an article of clothing that got snagged in the wound. Have never seen a suture look like that. Clean out with some peroxide and see you doctor.
