I am 14 years old and i think i get more discharge then usual. (i dont know if that made sense) but its like a white-ish color, im pretty sure thats the normal color. But everday, i come home from school and my underwear is like covered in it. It sometimes even goes through my underwear onto my pants. (which is embarressing) and i know thats wayy to much. Also i have these little white bumps all around my clitoris, and i have no idea what those are eithor, do they have anything to do with it? i've been curious about them before and tried to pop them, and they actually pop. So could it be them thats causing this? I just really need help because all of my underwear and even some pants are completely stained and ruined.

Have you ever talked to a healthcare provider about the discharge? It may be that this is just your body's "normal", but it never hurts to ask. In terms of the bumps, they sound like small pimples or clogged pores (which can happen pretty much anywhere) but that's another thing you can check in with a healthcare provider about. No matter what they turn out to be though, popping them isn't really a great idea - it increases the chances of infection, so you're best just to leave them alone.

okay thanks, but i dont really feel comfortable talking to my healthcare provider. So since thats completely out of the question, is there anything i can do to lessen the discharge or prevent/stop the clogged pores?

Can I ask why that's out of the question? Is that just about a given provider, or about ANY provider?

Per your discharges, unless it's from an infection or imbalance -- which then can and should be treated -- then nope, there's nothing you can do to change the amount. But if it does turn out not to be an infection or imbalance, you can wear pantyliners to help you manage it.

Those little white bumps, if they're around your clitoris -- rather than on or around the mons or outer labia -- they probably aren't clogged pores, they're more likely what's called fordyce spots, a typical kind of tissue texture people with all kinds of genitals have on parts of their genitals. They aren't anything bad or problematic, nor, though, should you try to pop them, as that can cause damage to that tissue.
