Sperm survival and ovulation


Q: Im a 21 year old female and ive been with my partner for 2 years now, on the 3rd of october 2011 we had intercourse and he finished inside of me. 4 days later I went to the toilet to pee an when I wiped I noticed a big thick clear string of discharge hanging from me so I wiped it onto the toilwt paper, then I wiped again an it just kept cominh (odurless and colourless, just clear) I noticed for the rest of the day I had alot of discharge in my underwear (white) then it stopped. Is that my body ovulating? If so, since we had sex 4 days prior could I have stll gotten pregnant.as it was so close to ovulation?
Thanks Meg
