both of what you have said is correct
but consider cheese is still a "live" food
that liquid that the cheese exude is actually the waste of the bacteria still alive in the cheese and eventually it will spoil the cheese and the mold if it is a blue veined cheese will turn pinkish and at that point i would definitely discard it
for that is another bacteria entirely and might cause food borne illness
