I had my appendix taken out. They only had to make one hole into my belly button. They glued my belly button shut and now I see a small red lump there?

In brief: Scar tissue

That could be a little bit of scar tissue forming.
If it is tender, getting larger or draining pus you need to contact your surgeon.
