As long as what you're seeing is clear or white-ish and it doesn't have any sort of a strong odour, it's just regular discharge and nothing to worry about. It's how the vagina keeps itself clean.

Should your discharge be darker in colour and have a funky smell, that might indicate an infection and you should see your gyno about it.
