Hello, I'm 17 and have never gone to see an

Patient : Hello, I'm 17 and have never gone to see an ob-gyn and am a little embarrassed to if we're being honest. I am experiencing pain and discomfort in my vaginal area. It's very itchy and it burns but only on the outside. My discharge is white but it is sometimes a little clumpy and always has an unpleasant odor. I'm wondering if this could be a yeast infection or a bacterial infection. And if it is one of the two, is there an over the counter medication that I could take without having to see a doctor. (By the way I am not sexually active)
