I recommend doing a pregnancy test, and repeat i 2 weeks if negative. If both negative and discharge persists, make appt to be evaluated for infection. Alsio use condomes until safely on another type of contraception.

The most likely would be implantation bleeding from a new pregnancy. It could also be some premenstrual spotting, which happens now and then to women. If no full period this month check a pregnancy test.
