Brief Answer:
Ultrasound scan required

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns about pain in right upper abdomen.

Such severe pain is associated with renal stones (calculi) or ruptured appendix. This is an emergency.

You need to get ultrasound scan of abdomen immediately to assess if there is renal calculi or appendix inflammation or rupture.

Vaginal discharge could be due to minor infection.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
