Probably not STD: Clear discharge usually isn't worrisome, but you're the best judge of whether your vaginal fluid is normal for you. If "negative" means both STD lab tests (gonorrhea, chlamydia) and also a professional exam (pelvic, pap, vaginal smear, etc), then an STD is doubtful. But if it continues or you remain concerned, definitely contact your doctor and follow her advice.
