Different discharges: If this is a thin, clear, sticky substance, it is just urethral mucus. This most commonly appears in response to visual or manual sexual stimulation. A urethral discharge that is thick, white or yellow, and associated with itching or burning, is caused by an infection known as urethritis. This can be caused by gonorrhea, chlamydia, or other less common organisms.
