Ok big nasty warm red thing on base of roos tail. I mushed at the base of it and bood and dark yellow liquid came out. Is it a ingrown feather or this oil gland I keep reading about?

Yes, that is the oil gland. It should be the same as the skin color. I would clean it up and keep an eye on it to make sure there is no infection.
