Do stye's turn white after a few days? (pic included)

My top eye lid became swollen 6 days ago. I had no clue what it was but after a few of my friends saw it they concluded it was most probably a stye. The swelling eventually turned into a red bump in one corner of my eye around day 3. Today when I woke up I saw not one, but two white bumps on my eye. The original red bump turned into a bump with a white tip, and another white bump appeared right next to it.

I've attached a picture, If anyone wants to see.

I have had this almost for 5 yrs now, at some point, 7 times in a row on each eye...
Pretty harmless and goes over the time, realized it wud reduce happening with more hand hygiene, washing hands every hour and using hand sanitizer. Also, stopped rubbing and touching eyes altogether. Does'nt happen anymore !!!

I'm pretty sure the white is pus inside of the stye, if so it doesn't mean it is getting better. If it bursts and the redness decreases then it's OK. You might want to call your doc if the redness gets ANY worse.
