    A white/clear discharge to me indicates that she is coming on heat and not inpig, especially as there is no milk present. A spot of blood is not normal though so something is not right.
    Make sure you stand her up am and pm to drink and eat and if there is no improvement in her condition I would give her a course of antibiotics ie penicillin.

    If thats the case then just keep checking her for milk and this will be a good indicator of when she will farrow.
    I hope all goes well.
