May be old blood: If it persists go see your gynecologist.

HPT: Ok, I am a little confused here. It says next choice" under medications. Does this mean that you have used this emergency contraceptive since your last period? Since this is an unknown, i will just provide a response for a woman who is sexually active with a late period and white vaginal discharge. I would take a home pregnancy test. It is the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant.

Due on my period in 2 days, at the end of day in my knickers a medium yellow colour discharge (dried) with a very faint smell to it. Is this normal?

Probably: This sounds quite normal. If there is fishy smell to it, then you may have an infection, but otherwise, probably normal discharge.
