What causes orange colour vaginal discharge?

I am a week away from my menstrual cycle and today I had bright orange discharge. There is no odor, no itching, no pain or discomfort whatsoever. I ve been with the same partner for 7 years and neither of us have ever had any infections. We had unprotected sex for 5 seconds before I made him put a condom on right away. Could this be an early sign of pregnancy?

Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
A orange vaginal discharge is likely an indication that the you have some sort of vaginal infection. Various types of bacteria can cause an orange vaginal discharge.
You need to consult Gynecologist and receive an examination to determine what type of medication or antibiotics, if any, you need to be prescribed.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
