New navel piercing help?

I just got my navel pierced 3 days ago. I've been cleaning it with unscented antibacterial soap my piercer gave me, and H2Ocean spray. Today's the first day the top hole has been a little red, though. The piercing is still sore, and I know that's normal, but the red is kinda freaking me out. It's not extreme or anything, just a little bit around the top hole. Is it possible that from sitting, I am irritating it? Because I mean, everyone's stomach gets that little fold in the skin when they sit down, I'm by no means fat haha. I'm probably just being paranoid, this is pretty much normal, right?

    The first time i went home when i got my naval peirced, i sat down and i had to jump straight back up, It does hurt sometimes when you sit down, just becareful when you sit down. It is totally normal. For about 2 weeks, mine was like that. Not in much pain, but a little. You’ll get over that stage in no time, and it will all be healed. :) Just keep cleaning it and cooling it down if it hurts. :)
    Hope i helped.
