umbilical hernia/ bleeding belly button

about 5 years ago I as told by my physician that I have an umbilical hernia, but it was very small at the time and he said it may stay small or get bigger.
Now I am having small amounts of blood and crusty stuff coming out of my belly button. Its also accompanied by minor pain. Could there be any relation between the two. I've had an inguinal hernia when I was 7to 16 and I know how dangerous they can be especially left untreated. Any ideas to a connection? Or could it be just an infection?
