Fluid Leaking From Knee

I have had a fluid build up on my knee for a couple of months. My doctor did look at it and told me not worry, it would go away on its own. There is no pain with it. Now a small would has opened up on the knee and a reddish/ clear liquid has started to leak out. If I press on it it squirts out. It still has no pain but the amout of fluid that comes out makes my pants leg quite wet. I have been putting a bandage over it to soak up the fluid. Is this something that will stop on its own, and should I worry about it? Will it get infected? Thanks in advance.
