Is this normal for a belly button piercing?

I got my navel pierced 10 days ago and so far I think it’s healing alright. There’s no pussing or bleeding and doesn’t really hurt anymore. I’ve been cleaning it with sea salt soaks or h2ocean twice a day, and I don’t purposely move the jewelry around. However, around the top hole it looks kinda bruised. Just that very small area around the top hole is a bit purple ish. And I’ve got white crust that also forms around the top hole. Is it supposed to look like this?

    This is all very normal.  The bruising will go away, and the white crust is normal.  The crust is lymph, and is a sign that your piercing is healing.
