Vaginal discharge in ten year old girl

Patient

Q: A few days ago my 10 year old daughter started complaining of a vaginal discharge, saying she has to change her panties several times per day. She says it does not itch nor does there seem to be any irritation around her vagina. The discharge is whitish yellow and doesn't seem to have a bad smell. It is bothering her terribly, being all "leaky" and I want to know what it could be and if I need to take her to a doctor or if this is something that is normal in pre-pubecente girls. Thank you for your time
