Hello, thanks for using HCM.
Feeling of pain and inflamed labia are not normal symptoms while vaginal discharges could be abnormal if abundant or fowl smelling or dirty or like coagulated milk. From all indications, it is likely that you have an infectious problem which accounts for the inflammation and vaginal discharge. Since you are still a virgin, its most likely that its a yeast infection (candida). Yeast infection typically has coagulated milk and whitish discharges of little or considerable abundance; some times with itches and with pains especially after urinating and it occurs more in people using oral contraceptives.
You should have no fear in seeing a gynecologist even though you are a virgin because an effective treatment could only be obtained after an appropriate diagnosis is made from an examination and tests if needed.
Thanks and hope you see a doctor and get well soon.
