Brief Answer:
Can be cyst or folliculitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The pain in the clitoris can be due to a local cause like blocked gland or Bartholin's cyst or folliculitis. This needs a direct local examination.
Meanwhile for relief you can do a hot compress in the area, clean it and apply local antiseptic ointment like Neosporin H.
In case the pain and discharge is persistent then oral antibiotics may be needed to treat this. You can take mild pain killer like acetaminophen after meals to take care of the pain.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
