Discharge that is NOT normal, but a likely signal of infection or illness may:
be chunky or very heavy, with small curds like cottage cheese be very watery have a strong odor be grayish, greenish, yellow or pinkish
The odor is usually much stronger than your normal odor. For a yeast infection, it's usually a strong yeasty smell, like bread. Vaginas do have a smell, but this smell would be stronger than normal and combined any of the symptoms described above.
