Welcome to and thanks for your question .
Well a normal, physiological vaginal discharge is usually clear, creamy or very slightly yellow/orange.
Without a foul odor or associated itching or pelvic pain or burning sensation, this is not of a concern.

If this worsens, or become associated with burning, itching, foul odor then ?vaginitis should be ruled out .
I suggest you to consult your Obs/Gyn doctor for a clinical examination for further evaluation and management .
