Yeast Infection or No?

Patient

Q: Hi! I am a female and I have been experiencing extreme itching in my urethra area. I am also experiencing occasional vaginal itching too. Not often but once in a while. I have been having a dried yellow discharge but that I think is normal and it's been like that for a while. I am not sexually active though I did masturbate once. I'm under 18 and I'm too afraid to say something to my parents because I don't know if this is something because of me fingering myself... I'm really worried and afraid to see a doctor. I don't want my parents to think I am sexually active or something. Do you have any idea what this could be and if it could be some sort of STD from masturbating or just a yeast infection or something along those lines?
