Not necessarily: White discharge may be normal or it may be a sign of an infection. See your healthcare provider if it is a new symptom, if it has an odor or if it causes burning, itching or inflammation.

Discharge: If there is any suspicion of sexually transmitted infection, then you will need to have it checked out. If there is no infection and no discharge any more, i would not worry too much about it.

No: Normal, no. Common, yes. Women with anovulatory cycles (without producing eggs) have irregular cycle length--or miss periods. The most common cause of this is pcos, which is associated with being over weight, abnormal hair growth, and abnormalities of blood sugar. White discharge can be caused by many things, but high blood sugar is one of them.

Infection & hormones: Some vaginal discharge can be normal. As you go through the month your hormones cause changes in the discharge. In some cases though discharge can be a sign of infection. Causes incluse yeast, bacterial vaginosis, and stds. There are simple tests that can be done in the office to determine if this is normal or not.

Late period?: It sounds like you got your period, but that it was 2 days late. It sounds like you also have white discharge. The white discharge might or might not be yeast. If it is yeast, it would likely be accompanied by itching or burning. Yeast also occurs most often after taking antibiotics or in a diabetic.
