Is my surface hip piercing infected?

I can't tell if my hip piercing is infected or healing. I've been putting the right amount of sea salt on my piercing s and its been about a week since I got them. There's like this crust around each ball of the barbells that are under my skin. But people say that its just healing. But I can't tell if its a scab or just some crust that may be from a liquid that rarely comes out of my left piercing and when it does the fluid is clear and there is no smell. I guess im just asking that's the piercing healing or its infected.

    It’s just healing. My ear piercings did that for a while then after a year they stopped. If it were infected it would be red and swollen with puss coming out of it.

    If the crust looks dried out, It’s rejecting.
    It happened to mine which I had just a few months ago.
    They weren’t red, they didn’t hurt, no puss.
    Just looked like the skin right around the piercing holes was dried out and just a bit flakey.
    Go back to your piercer and ask.
