You : You need to be seen by a healthcare provider and have cultures taken. It could be symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection but there are other infections that it could be as well. The only way to tell for sure is to be examined and have cultures taken. It is important to have a diagnosis as infections can lead to scarring in the fallopian tubes. If your doctor can't see you immediately or you have pain, fever, or vomiting then you need to go to the er.

Agree with Dr. E.: If you are sexually active, it could be a sexually transmitted infection and you ought to see a doctor for an evaluation. If you do not have access to a doctor, you may visit the Planned Parenthood Clinic in your town.
Get HPV vaccine.
