    Its not normal at all and it sounds like you have an infection. You must see a doctor ASAP. If you are in UK  you can go to A/E.   This needs urgent attention.

    There is not much you on your own can do for your knee and pus problem....This needs professional orthopaedic help. You should not delay in getting this help as the pus may be coming from an infected bone. You say you had surgery....can you return to the place where you had that surgery?  If not then contact your doctor who can direct you to an orthopaedic consultant. Did you have plates/pins?  or what? Something is seriously wrong here and needs sorting out quickly before it worsens.  you urgently need antibiotics.
