In brief: See a doctor

Don't self treat a yeast infection unless you are certain of the diagnosis.
At your age of 16, it is unlikely you've had many yeast infections and therefore it should be professionally confirmed. If you are sexually active, an STD may be likely if you have discharge. And not sure why you're asking about shaving. Pubic area shaving irritation or pimples usualy is not yeast. See a doctor soon.
