Call your OB: Today and every time this question comes up until you are delivered. If you're worried about labor you need to call your OB - only, the internet and well-meaning family cannot help you.
White discharge in: Late pregnancy is normal and not a sign of labor. Some women will get spotting as they start to get regular contractions.

Sounds like it: If this is your first what you are describing is what I have seen. Once the head drops things tend to take off. See your doctor for another exam. You may get a surprise!
Normal vs infection: Some women's discharge varies w/time of month (relative to menses/periods). If you're otherwise asymptomatic, you can just take a wait & see attitude. If there's any itchiness to your vagina (i'm assuming that's where your discharge is coming from), you might have a yeast infection which should respond to many over-the-counter antifungals. If you're sexually active w/o using condoms, go see ur doc.
Odor: If this is an odor not familiar to you, then I would see your gynecologist to have a checkup for bacterial infection.

White cough is mucus: Whenever you cough, mucus in your airways and lungs is being brought up (expectorated). The color indicates cells are present in your mucus. Try drinking plenty of fluids, maybe add an expectorant, such as Guaifenesin (mucinex). Unless you are experiencing other symptoms, white mucus is ok.
Discharge: A woman's discharge goes from opaque and thick to clear and stretchy like egg whites at a woman's most fertile time when she is ovulating and most likely to become pregnant.
What does it mean when u have a lot of white discharge and watery discharge a week after protected sex?
Nothing necessarily: If your question has to do with the possibility of a pregnancy then, the meaning of the discharge can only be known after you miss your next period, get a home pregnancy test and find out the results. The other thing that a discharge can indicate in a woman following sexual relations is that of an infection. Protected sex reduces but does not illuminate chances of sexually transmitted infection.
