Building a Barrier: Just as soon as you ovulate (in order to get pregnant) you begin a change in your cervical mucous that creates a barrier to prevent the upward transmission of pathogens from the vagina into the uterus (a mucous plug). Some of that discharge could just be extra up until the plug is established. Hard to say, but i don't think anything is wrong here.
