35 weeks pregnant and can't poop ?

I feel like i have to poop really bad but nothing comes. I go to the bathroom and nothing happens. now when I and sitting there on the toilet and look down its a dropping . I wipe myself and its light green discharge. Any idea what's going on. I really have to poop so this is really frustrating. I am not having contractions though. Could I be in labor? I took a colace that my doctor suggested for constipation, any other suggestions. This is not working for me?
