Although bleeding isn't usually associated with yeast, there could could be a small amt of blood mixed in causing pink coloration. Leukorrhea is a normal vaginal discharge (d/c).

Healthy discharge is not associated with pain or itching, like a yeast infection is. Sometimes, but not always, yeast discharge is "like cottage cheese" as it forms little clumps. The discharge itself, however, isn't definitive. The symptoms are more important. To establish.
