Yes: If you are monitoring your discharge and it's clear and watery, it's likely that you are just before ovulation. Once you are ovulating the discharge becomes somewhat thicker and 'stringy", like egg whites, and slick.

Which signs?: It depends on which signs you mean. Tender breasts can be caused by too much caffeine. Some spotting can be because of the hormonal changes at ovulation. Some pain, usually more on one side or the other, can be caused by the rupture of the cyst in which the egg develops.

Ovulation?: As ovulation approaches, your cervical mucus changes in amount and consistency. By paying careful attention to the change, you can predict your most fertile days. When you're not ovulating, cervical mucus may appear sticky, creamy, or may be entirely absent. As ovulation approaches, cervical mucus becomes more abundant, takes on a watery to raw-egg-white-like consistency, and stretches up to an inch or more between your fingers.
