Dangerous: This sounds like it could be a very dangerous situation, because you haven't shared the location or extent of your injury. So, i don't know what those fluids are or where they are coming from. In order to assess your injury and answer your question, you really need to be seen. You could go to a county health clinic, an urgent care center, or even an er and let them check this out. Be well.
