Hormone changes: The discharge and cramps may indicate a possible blockage of your menstrual flow. You also could have a hormone imbalance which ould explain the headaches too. See your gyn to discuss the problem and have an exam as a starting point to evAluating your issues.

Post-menstrual bleed: Could be caused by lots of different reasons. Can be hormonal in nature. Is it possible you may be pregnant? Could also be caused by the egg release or implantation. Most light pink discharge is normal. It can also be normal to have this after intercourse. Lastly, some infections can cause a pinkish discharge. If you have concerns, see your doctor. Good luck!
