Actually, all of this sounds absolutely normal to me.
Masturbation (and any sexual activity for that matter) does not change the appearance of your genitals. Your labia may grow longer during puberty, so that may be why you're noticing a change, but let me assure you- it's normal and healthy! Labia are all sorts of different sizes, shapes, and colors.
A white discharge can be completely normal and healthy- you only need to be concerned if this discharge is kind of chunky or is accompanied by itching, burning, or a foul odor. Otherwise, it's likely normal vaginal discharge.
The stuff you are seeing in your underwear is most likely discharge, and it's completely normal, unless it's an odd color or smells foul/fishy. Here's a link to one of our articles with some extra information: Honorably Discharged: A Guide to Vaginal Secretions
As for your labia (the lips of your vagina/vulva), they sound completely normal to me. Genitals, just like the rest of the body, can vary tremendously from person to person. Some women have long labia, some have shorter labia, and some even have one of each! It's all normal, and unless it causes a lot of physical discomfort, nothing needs to be done about them. The inner and outer labia actually contain a lot of nerve endings that help make sexual activity very pleasurable.
