k my sister has one of these things, but for some reason its hard for me to ask her stuff like this. im not sure if this is where i should post this, but i figured hopefully i could still get a response. ok so almost every time i go to the bathroom, my panties are wet... not with pee but i heard it was some kind of ejaculation or something. i am not sexually active, but it happens everyday all day. is there something wrong with me? also, what is it supposed to smell like down there? or at least not supposed to smell like? anything and everything will help. thanks

Welcome to Scarleteen! There is a myriad of information on the site, it's very user friendly, however I'm sure many have some relevant links to articles answering your question. How old are you, and have you had your period yet? It sounds like normal discharge to me, and could be an indication of flucuating hormones preparing your body to begin menstruation. Or maybe you just need to wipe better. Kidding. Seriously though, if you have no discomfort, and the smell is not unpleasant or overpowering, it sounds pretty normal.
Also, if your sister is older than you and you have a decent relationship, you should be able to talk to her about things like this. If not her, than your mother, or another woman you trust. We're here for you too, but I'm sure they know a lot more about your body than we do! Good luck!!
What you're talking about is vaginal discharge. Women have discharge all the time, not just during their periods. For more information about it (including the smell question), check out: Honorably Discharged: A Guide to Your Vaginal Secretions. Be sure to ask us if there's anything that article didn't answer.
