Pink discharge: Is it my period?

So I've never had my period and am not (or have ever been) sexually active. But today after I wiped I had some pink discharge (or something), but not in my underwear or in my pee, and not anytime except after I peed. I'm embarrassed to tell my mom because sometimes I, um, masturbate. Not with a finger or anything, though, I just hump a pillow. Is it because of that?

It sounds like the blood you saw when you wiped is either a sign that you’re about to get your period or you may have a cut or a popped pimple or blister down there that’s bleeding. Don’t worry, humping a pillow would not cause anything like this to happen (although masturbating with your fingers when your nails are long or rough could—just saying!).

If you have a cut or some such thing down there, I wouldn’t worry unless you see the blood when you wipe several days in a row, and it becomes a deeper red. If you are getting your period, the blood flow should become heavier and you’ll likely see some evidence in your panties. If you’re itchy or unusual.
