Welcome to ehealthforum,
The clear mucus discharge that you describe after 7-10 days of your periods could suggest fertile mucus, and presence of blood streaks in it could indicate ovulation. Presence of blood tinged discharge during or after intercourse can also indicate vaginal infections, cervicitis, endometritis, PID etc. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Wait and watch for your next periods. If you miss your periods, or if you have abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
