Milky white discharge from vagina. Pregnancy or yeast infection?

I could potentially be newly pregnant. I know have a milky white, stretchy substance coming from below. I want to know if this is a symptom of pregnancy or a yeast infection . It has no smell, it does not itch or burn (when using the bathroom). I put a mirror below to see and there is a lot down there. I have been discharging since earlier this week.

Hello ma'am.

The description does match that of an infection with possibilities ranging from bacterial vaginosis, non-specific urethritis, yeast infection, etc.

It would be best to visit a doctor. Although a symptom called leucorrhea which matches such a presentation is seen in pregnant women, this can only be assumed once infections and other causes have been ruled out. It is also uncommon to see leucorrhea in women who are in the early stages of pregnancy.

It would this be best to visit your doctor and get a vagonal swab test to confirm a diagnosis and get treated accordingly.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
