Unlikely: There are some contagious things this could be, it however, does not sound like herpes. On the other hand this can be anything from an ingrown hair to syphilis based on the description. It may be embarrassing, but this is something you need to get checked. If you don't want to see your doctor I'm sure you can find a walk in clinic you don't normally use. Just be open and honest.

Warm compresses: A large painful nodular acne lesion should not be squeezed/popped. It is already ruptured under the surface of your skin. You have an infection setting in and you need to let your body deal with it. Squeezing it might spread the infection or make it worse. You can try to apply warm wet compresses (30min at a time) to the site and see if this drains it. See a doc if not resolving in 7 days.

What's the clear liquid/oil that comes out of pimples? Is it the same as Pus?

Interstitial fluid: All cells are bathed with interstitial fluid, which then drains into the lymphatics. This fluid is clear and resembles plasma & is the fluid that in "water blisters" or burns. Pimples are infected hair follicles and the fluid is usually yellow or milky, and that is pus, a mixture of tissue fluid, white blood cells and sebum or oil. Normal hair follicles secrete sebum, which is a clear oil.

Got a pimple on my chin, hard white stuff came out. Clear liquid, crust. Went away; one came in below it, now one on my butt cheek. What is this?

Sebaceous cysts: These sound like sebaceous cysts and occur when the duct leading from the sebaceous glands to the skin surface gets clogged with debris. The sebum "lubricates" the skin and when trapped dries forming the hard white matter you describe. It can occur anywhere you have a hair follicle. Good exfoliation can help prevent this. These also can be acne lesions, if bothered see a dermatologist.
