STD? Genital herpes?: This sounds like an STD, especially new genital herpes -- the main cause of painful genital sores or bumps, especially when combined with abnormal doscjarge. Of course STD is possible only if you are sexually active. No matter what, you must get care ASAP -- see a doctor within a day. (If herpes, diagnosis is most accurate and treatment most effective the sooner they are done.) Good luck.
