Welcome to ehealthforum,
Thick white smelly discharge could suggest presence of infection. Absence of periods or delay could be suggestive of pregnancy (if you are sexually active and not on any form of birth control). The exact cause can be made out after thorough examination to rule out pregnancy. A vaginal swab/smear test done would help in ruling out vaginal infection. If infection is detected, get both you and your partner treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and treatment.
Take care.
