36 weeks and 4 days, white discharge before labor, should i be concerned?

White discharge in: Late pregnancy is normal and not a sign of labor. Some women will get spotting as they start to get regular contractions. Other women break the bag of water - that is clear water like fluid that is usually enough to run down the legs. This is different from the normal white to yellow discharge common in late pregnancy.
