Hi please do not worry. I think due to a problem in your hormonal cycle, you did not have complete periods and there is follow up discharge. This can happen sometimes.I would suggest you wait for a few days and only if it does not clear up then see a gynaecologist. And even if it clears up this time and recurs again in the next cycle, you must see your Gynaecologist. Occasionaly there can be problems inside the uterus causing this type of discharge and a sonography will help in the diagnosis.
