Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
It's very unusual for the discharge associated with a heat period to be that extensive and so it's likely to represent an open pyometra - infected uterus - and the pus that has formed in the uterus is now rolling out through an open cervix. Spaying her should be curative and that should be done at your earliest convenience.
