Vaginal Problems, white discharge

I'm only thirteens years old. I have not had my period, and i have not been sexually active. I have this white or yellow goo leak from my vigina (vagina). I've heard everyone call it a discharge. But what is it and why is it happening? Its very uncomfortable and i want it to stop. So can someone please find a real answer for me!?
Please i'm really scared help me.

No worries. It is vaginal discharge.

Girls usually experience vaginal discharge about 6 months before they experience their first periods. It's caused by the changing hormones in your body---and will be with you until (and sometimes after) menopause, which won't come until you're about 50-ish.

Completely normal, and healthy. The discharge keeps your vagina healthy and clean. In case you're wondering, it's supposed to have a slight odor.

You should only worry if the vaginal discharge turns green, brown, or gray in colour.

I had the same for a while... I finally got up the nerve to talk to my mom. She said the exact thing! No worries just vaginal discharge, etc. Yay!! One less thing to worry about!

Vaginal discharge happens during puberty. It comes from your 'virginia' (you know what i mean). It can be white and appears yellowish on your undies. It ususally comes before your period. If you dont like the feeling, try wearing pantiliners, [if you have the guts to ask your mom for some].
If it is brown, green, itchy, burny, swollen, then u have an infection.
