1 day before period . Having cramp (like my normal period) it feels like my period is already on.I have clear discharge with off and on blood streaks ?

Normal variation: What you described appears to a normal variation on your usual cycle and not to be concerned about.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
