I’ve had them in for a year and 4 months now. No issues until now, my right nipple isn’t adjusting anymore. Yellow puss , Crusty’s all around and it swelled up . Should I take it out ? I clean very well and do my sss process. Not sure what in the world happened. Here’s how it looks. It does hurt when touched.

I wouldn't take that out, if you take it out the drainage points are going to close and then you will have a much larger problem. From what it looks like in the photos, you have pretty large hypotrophic scaring on both sides. That could be caused by bumping it a lot, sleeping on it, really a number of things. I would recommend to keep up with the saline soaks with 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt in 8oz of warm water twice a day and going to either see your piercer or a doctor for more information on how to properly treat it.

Honestly it's really hard to tell exactly what's going on.
I'd suggest reading through this nipple thread first: and when in doubt, go see a piercer.
