how do you know if its your period about to arrive in a week or you are pregnant with heavy thick white discharge with no smell??

You don't: Heavy thick white discharge does not predict whether you are going to be pregnant or get your menstrual cycle. If this discharge is not normal for you, then you might have an infection. I would suggest you make an appointment with your gynecologist for an examination and appropriate testing.

You don't know.: Neither of these will tell you. You are stuck with waiting and then pregnancy tests. If you develop itching the drainage might be cacdida.
