Neither: If the discharge has no odor or itching it is normal and not a sign of pregnancy.

Too vague: Discharge is extremely common and highly non-specific, it's probably neither period nor pregnancy, but could theoretically be either. If concerned about pregnancy do a home test for an answer.

The question is..: Are you late for your cycle? If you are, you need to take a pregnancy test. If your cycles are irregular, that will make undertanding what is going on more difficult, and plenty of young women become pregnant with irregular cycles and are taken by surprise. So, that's issue number one. Issue 2 is if the discharge is abnormal for you, you probaly should have a pelvic exam. Best wishes and be safe.
