Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

If you have got any itching along with the milky white discharge, then the possibility of it being a fungal infection is high (candidiasis).

This can be confirmed by doing a microscopic examination of the discharge. However, if there are no associated symptoms, it could simply be leucorrhoea (normal excessive vaginal discharge).

I would suggest you to get your serum HCG level estimated as this is more specific than the urine for pregnancy tests.

The HCG (it is a hormone) levels rise only in pregnancy and its presence will confirm the status of your pregnancy. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
