In brief: Not uncommon

I gather you had a "suprapubic catheter" which can leak at the skin level for up to a month as the skin heals around the catheter..
..After the first month there is a matured track that allows the catheter to be exchanged. For now, just keep the skin clean with soap/h2o and gauze dressing. Your urologist office should be available to help if concerns persist.
