In brief: Maybe

If it is a clear mucusy discharge and you have periods shorter than 28 days, it may just be a sign of your ovulation which ususally occurs 14 days before your next period.
It may also mean an infection and should be checked, especially if it has an odor, color, or causes itching and/or irritation...
