Thanks for your query.
By the end of this session, I hope that I have solved your queries.

No, Diabetes would not cause such vaginal discharge. The colour suggests it is blood. Candidial infection is thicker in consistency.
Kindly check for Pap test with your Gynaec.
Ultrasonography of lower abdomen may be useful for proper diagnosis.

Waiting for your follow-up
