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

Since you had your periods, chances of pregnancy are less. To differentiate this bleeding from implantation bleeding and any early impending miscarriage bleeding, you can do a urine for pregnancy test or get your serum HCG levels checked.

Discharge varies in consistency during different stages of menstrual cycle and can be thick or egg white like. This depends on the release of hormones estrogen or progesterone during the menstrual cycle. The lump can be a cyst or a benign growth of the vulva.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
