Possibly: There could be some blood or pus in the semen from prostate inflammation, which could cause discoloration.

Possibly: Pain in the perineum, the region between the anus and the scrotum, frequency, urgency and slowing of the urinary stream with a possible fever are consistent with acute prostatitis. One may see purulent discharge or yellowish ejaculate in this circumstance. This is uncommon occurring in about 5% of the prostatitis cases. More common is chronic prostatitis which would be without a fever or prostatodynia.

Sometimes: Semen is produced in the prostate and is expelled when you ejaculate. Prostate infection causes inflammation and pain can occur in the prostate, penis, testicles and pelvis. The prostate is most active during arousal / ejac and penis pain is common. Color, volume and consistency of the semen can change. See an md for possible antibiotics. Other causes include: urethral scar, urine infx, stis.
