I just got my belly button pierced. (on impulse) but now I'm thinking about taking it out. Does anyone know the consequences of removing it after one day? I'm not sure I want it anymore.

Even if you take it out it will still leave a scar. I've seen some healed piercings look like freckles from a distance on on closer inspection you can see a small dip where the skin is not even. It will eventually heal if you remove the piercing but if you remove it do not put it back in unless you are ready for a world of hurt.
Personally, I would leave it in and let it fully heal. That way later down the road you can choose to wear the piercing or not. If I was going to have the scar there anyways I would prefer the option. If you choose to remove it you have a higher chance of it getting infected.
If this is something you considered for a while and now you are not sure about it anymore then that is normal and something I even experienced myself. I think it is just a matter of getting used to a permanent change. I experienced it again with my tattoo.
If this was the result of a spontaneous decision then consider your option for several days. For your own benefit please do not be spontaneous again about a permanent physical change by randomly deciding again.1
