Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You may have infection in the depth of the belly button. Clean it out with a Q tip and apply antibiotic ointment like Neosporin. If that does not help in a week or so it would be prudent to see your doctor.
Wish you good health!
