I screwed up my closed repair

I had a pilonidal removed using the closed technique about a month ago. Everything seemed to be going extremely well until I strained the wound about a week ago. Before I had almost zero pain and there was never any discharge. Now the wound is sensitive to the touch and is discharging a light green, non-smelling, fluid. The skin that has healed over the wound seems extremely thin and the cavity is full of fluid.

Does anyone gone through something similar? Are these the beginning sings of an infection? Any advice would be appreciated.
