Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms are suggestive of vaginal infection. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination, vaginal swab/smear test and PAP smear test to identify causative agent and rule out cervical issues. Get started on treatment as appropriate. Since you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (vagina has its own mechanism of cleaning itself. Use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and it becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. Avoid having unprotected intercourse while both of you are on treatment course.
Take care.
