Doubtful: If the pain has been there for more than a few days, its unlikely to be appendicitis. It could be a hernia at the belly button, or just above. This is especially true of there is an associated lump that can be pushed in to the abdomen. Best to see your primary care provider for a more complete evaluation.

Maybe blackheads or: A person can get blackheads (open comedones) anywhere, but they are more common in locations that can have acne. First, a skin pore is partly blocked by a little clump of skin cells. The skin pore continues producing more skin cells, mixed with some oils.

Pain in belly button and pushed the top of the belly button inwards and now there is blood coming out?

Omphalitis: This occurs among people with very deep navels [persistent urachus] who have hairy skin on the abdomen. The hairs have tiny barbs on the sides which causes them to all line up inside the umbilicus where they slowly penetrate into the skin. So these loose hairs are causing inflamation in there, progressively worse. If you can clean them out, it will heal. This is hard, so surgical excision cures. ...Read more

I've had my belly button piercing for five months, and around the top hole of the piercing is a purple color but there's no puss coming out.

Skin healing: If there is no pus, no swelling and no tenderness, then the site is probably healing just fine. Some skin heals with a discoloration at first, which fades with time. If the piercing gets pulled on by your clothing during the day, that could be causing ongoing irritation, though, so try not to let it get tugged on. ...Read more

This may also give it the appearance of being outwardly protruded, if that is what you mean by open. All that said, hernias are not usually red and swollen, unless something is wrong or there is some type of infection present in the area. Suggest having this evaluated in-person. ...Read more
