during pregnancy the blood supply to local organs increases which may show spotting by mild friction, that might have presented as pinkish discharge,
you should be cautious regarding,
-if pinking discharge turns into blood stained mucus with pain abdomen that may indicate onset of labor pains,
-if watery discharge occurs that may be leaking of amniotic fluid,
so if these features develop you have to consult gynecologist immediately.
take care.
