What is the reason for white discharge from small baby girl?

In brief: Normal development
Baby girls frequently have a white mucousy fluid in the vaginal area in the newborn time.
This is perfectly normal and due to hormone changes. Just clean it gently with a damp cloth but do not scrub since the diaper area is very delicate. It will continue for a while and then gradually stop appearing.
