In brief: Usually before

This discharge is seen usually before ovulation but can linger after. The reason it is "creamy" is to allow the sperm to go through it and reach the egg.
If you are noticing it over 14 days before your expected period, then you are probably noticing it before ovulation.

In brief: Difficult...

The dischage you are describing is from the estrogen produced by a developing follicle, which in turn was caused by the brain sending a message (fsh) to the ovaries.
For most women and most cycles it occurs around the time of ovulation, +/- a day. However, it can occur several days prior...And up to several days after.
