what is a vaginal discharge?

Many things

Vaginal_discharge
Vaginal discharge can be many things. Sometimes yeast can cause this, or BV (bacterial overgrowth). Many sexually transmitted infections (gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc) can also cause this. For discharge that lasts more than a few days, especially if it burns, itches, or hurts, see your doctor.

milky vaginal discharge normal?

Yes

Vaginal_discharge
Mild white vaginal discharge is normal and is due to hormonal changes in a woman's body. If your discharge becomes copious, foul smelling, or greenish, this could be a sign of infection. In that case it would be best to see a doctor.
