Brief Answer:
Not pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for information.

This does not appear to be pregnancy. This is just delayed periods.

The discharge you mentioned could be due to protection mechanism of body against infection or irritation. This is one time event and hence dont worry about it.

I suggest you do pregnancy test at home by urine test to see if pregnancy is ruled out for sure.

Let me know if you need more help.
