All dogs have heat cycles which last about 3 weeks. Usually the first week there is a red discharge, the second a straw or clear discharge and the third week almost no discharge.
Dogs need to be kept away from males the whole three weeks unless you are planning puppies.
They usually come into season about every 6 months though some may have shorter or longer cycles.
Hope this helps you!
