Yes, discharge is normal and every woman has vaginal discharge in varying degrees. It's perfectly fine unless it has a strong odor, has curdles/chunks, or greenish, because then it can be indicative of something wrong.
Sounds odd, but discharge can actually be pretty useful--it can sometimes signal when you're going to have your period so that you can be ready. You can even use it to chart your cycles: http://www.scarleteen.com/body/ontherag.html
If you want, you can use a pantyliner (we recommend cotton Natracare liners) on days when you have heavier discharge.
