Stinky yellow fluid in belly button?

Clean better

Abdomen-central-belly_button
Honestly, the most common reason I find for this is simply needing to clean more completely. I know that may sound mean. However, sometimes infections can occur especially in those whose umbillicus or belly button had for instance a skin fold creating a pocket that is more easily infected and/or MUCH harder to keep clean. This may require antibiotics and even surgery to correct.

What would cause my belly button to leak a clear fluid?

Debris built up

Belly_button
Belly buttons come in all sizes and shapes. Old skin cells are being shed all the time and this material can build up in the umbilicus (belly button). Sometimes this debris can become infected and can drain some liquid material or pus. You may want to gently clean out area with peroxide on a Q-tip. If it is a persistent problem, see your PCP, or a dermatologist.

What does it mean if u have a clear gooey fluid comin frm ur belly button?

Possible infection

Abdomen
I'm wondering if your bellybutton is also read or itchy, you have clear fluid coming from it you have dirt or other things trapped in your belly button? I would take a bath and with either a washcloth or Q-tip gently try to clean out your bellybutton area. After that put some antibiotic ointment on it and see if that helps. Obviously if you had surgery or anything else in the area you should be seen by your doctor right away
