I am a day late in my cycle and when I keep thinking that my period is coming there is nothing there but I feel like a dripping sensation like it is my period but when I look in my panties there is just like milky discharge and I am worried that I can be Pregnant. Because around the time that I should be fertile my boyfriend and I was having unprotected sex and using the withdrawl method. The last time that I had a Period was September 4th and is a 28day cycle. I am a bit scared and confused. However I am calm ready 2 hear whatever news u give me. Thank You for taking the time to help me out.

Being a day late in your normal cycle is nothing too serious, granted it can vary time to time. I'd be more concerned if you don't your period in the next few days due to unprotected sex. Get a pregnancy and find out now rather than wait.

Have you actually had a pregnancy risk since your last period?
As tainted closure said, a day late isn't even that late ...
If i were you, (and if you have actually had a risk since your last period) i'd wait a few more days and then take a test. It's not at all uncommon for a woman's period to be a day or two off, and it's not a big deal.
I'd like to point out that the so-called 'withdrawal method' is not an effective preventor of STDs or pregnancy. In the future, I'd use a condom. : ) Anywho, although it's unlikely that you're pregnant, it's still a possibility and I suggest you take a test. You and your partner might want to get tested for STDs as well (if you haven't already been).
Also, about the discharge, I wouldn't be worried, really. To the best of my knowledge increased discharge around your period is perfectly normal. I know I tend to get the sort of dripping sensation you've discribed for a few days before my period. It's actually a convienient warning to get stocked up on pads. That and the PMS...
