Normal vaginal discharge and cervical mucus are yellowish, whitish, clear, or -- around your period -- slightly brown or pink. Normal vaginal mucus or discharge does not itch or smell foul, and while it can be everything from thin to pasty, it should not have "chunks" or curdles in it. If on any day you find your vaginal discharge to be itchy, have a strong scent, have curdles in it, or to be greenish or very pink (when you are not approaching or finishing your period), consult your gynecologist. From Sexual Health 101-Hers"

When aroused, the vagina produces additional lubrication, which is what you probably saw. Feel free to ask your girlfriend about vaginal discharge since she'll be more aware of her own cycle. Since the condom seemed the be holding the semen, it's not likely that the condom broke. Check the condom for visible rips, tears, or dripping out of the tip after usage.
