white stuff around cliterous

Well, I'm 18 and I'm not currently sexually active with my fiance, but I've never had a period except once, and it only bled for a day and that was a few years ago, and noticed a white substance around my clit that I can pull off and its leaves my vagina smelling funny. Do I have a yeast infection or should I just get over the counter medications like vagisil???

If you're not itching and it doesn't smell really bad (not just a bit funny), then it's probably not a yeast infection.  Yeast infections also usually cause "cottage cheese" discharge.  You shouldn't use OTC yeast infection treatments unless you've had a confirmed yeast infection before and so know exactly what's going on, otherwise you could make things worse.  It's probably something called smegma, which is a gathering of dead skin cells and sebum and moisture in the genitalia, which can smell funny.  Try cleaning the area daily with gentle soap (nothing scented or harsh) and see if it goes away.
