Hello, when I push my gums along my lower gum line, a smelly pus comes out. I can do this throughout the day and it’s been like this for several weeks. There is no tooth/gum pain and my teeth don’t feel loose. I brush my teeth at least once a day and floss frequently as well. My gums aren’t red and don’t appear inflamed. What could this be?

Good day
If there is indeed pus coming out, it is clearly a bacterial infection. Your photos suggest otherwise, so you might be mistaken that it is actually pus coming out. If you are unsure, it best to see your dentist for a clinical evaluation, since photos can be misleading.
