Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
You are experiencing period-like symptoms and there is a white discharge. White discharge can sometimes be normal before the expected periods. Periods can be often delayed by 3-4 days. So please do not worry.
If you do not get your period in the next 1 week, get the urine pregnancy test done although the chances are remote.
Pregnancy can occur if intercourse happens around the ovulation time which is mid-cycle. So considering your cycles are regular ( 28-35 days ), unprotected intercourse should be avoided on 8th-20th day of the cycle to completely negate any risk of unwanted pregnancy.
Hope this was helpful.
