In brief: It is healing.

You are doing the right thing to use warm compresses.
The drainage of pus was the beginning of healing process. Continue the warm compresses till the swelling is gone and there is no more pus. If the eye itself (The white part) starts getting red and draining pus, then you will need to see a doctor to get prescription for antibiotic eye drops or lotion.
