In brief: Color but B careful

Gonorrhea is usually yellow to greenish.
Chlamydia can be clear but may be a bit discolored. May not have any with either. If you are concerned with either, get checked immediately and get treated. There are dire consequences. Sterility being one. Scarring is another. The only way to know is to get checked, cultured and treated. Use condoms! use condoms! use condoms!

In brief: STI

Just by visually examining the discharge will not tell you which STI is which.
You really need to have the appropriate tests done to differentiate between the two as treatment is different for these diseases. Check with your doctor or the clinic.
