Welcome to ehealthforum.
If the white discharge is not associated with itching, burning, discomfort, pain, or pain with intercourse, then you can consider it to be normal. If it is associated with any of the above mentioned symptoms or with alerted smell or color or consistency, then consider getting it evaluated by your doctor/gynecologist. You will need to have a vaginal swab/smear test done to rule out any infectious cause for it. If infection is detected, then get started on appropriate treatment as indicated. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
