No: Having a vaginal discharge is not normal but it is common. Malodorous or bloody discharges should be evaluated by a doctor. You may try an over-the-counter douche for a week to see if it solves your problem?

Depends: on contact, undergarments, sexual activity, unprotected intercourse, oral sex etc. You will need a GYN exam and an examination of the discharge. If sexually active and not protected, I suggest an STS screen; however, your GYN will advise yo that in young women, some types of discharge are normal: related to vaginal and cervical secretions.
