Brief Answer:
Could be mild hormonal disturbance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Sometimes, periods can be delayed due to hormonal disturbance.
Factors such as - stress, anxiety, emotional turbulence, weight changes, unusual exercise, travelling, late nights, smoking, drinking , taking hormones or pills or medications - all this can result in delayed periods.
So relax, sometimes it happens .
Now, please tell me a few more things.
Do you always have regular periods ?
When was your last period ?
What is your height and weight ?
Are you sexually active ?
Have you taken a pregnancy test ?
ALong with the discharge, do you have pain / itching / redness / tenderness / foul smell ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Vaginal infection is likely.

Detailed Answer:
So your periods were on time.
Now regarding the discharge, itching and foul smell, it points to a vaginal infection.
Please consult an OB - GYN and go for a vaginal swab to confirm type of infection.
Then treatment should be taken.
Till then, please have protected sex only.
Avoid touching the area, and keep your nails short and trimmed.
Change undergarments frequently
Avoid any soaps, gels, douches - just clean the vagina with lukewarm water.
Always pass urine after sex.
Take care.
