Pink discharge = first period?

Ok so I'm actually 14, and haven't started my period, no this isn't the problem, my mother was late too. For the past 7 months or so ive had white discharge, and have been wearing panty liners for awhile too. This weekend I went to the bathroom, and to my surprise, the liners had a pinkish discharge kind of thing. This has been happening since then, though I'm not having any other symptoms.... I'm hoping to get my period before school starts in a week, is that reasonable. Thank you if you respond, and have a great day!

Dischage usually occurs 6 months to a year before you get your first period.

The pink discharge means you will get your period soon.

Unfortunately you have no control when it will come and when it finishes. When I first started my period, it was the middle of the day and I was in school! All my sisters were at home when they started so they got a day off!

my first period?!
a couple of months ago I went to the toilet and there was some light pinkish blood but not a lot. Nothing like that has happened ever since and I'm hoping my period will start this summer. Is that reasonable? Im 12, 13 in early august and all my friends have just started. What do I do??
