Stabing cervical pain, am I dilating?

Patient : I have been getting a strange achy, almost pushing pain sometimes stabbing pain in my cervix lately (comming from the inside it feels like at times). I am 29 wks pregnant and was in the hospital for symptoms of preterm labor a few weeks ago. I was told I was 1cm dilated,10% effaced but, can this pain be related to the effacement and dilation of my cervix? It happens often, moreso recently than in days past. Should I go to the hospital? I have no bleeding although I do have an increase in discharge, no odd color,odor, but amount is def. more. This is my first pregnancy.
