A healthy vagina is acidic and contains bacteria that help in fighting against infections and keep the PH level normal. A healthy vagina will discharge small amounts of secretions to keep itself perfect, any kind of imbalance of these normal conditions may be the reason for vaginal disorder.
When you see these signs, know your vagina is unhealthy, thus see a doctor:

-Red , inflamed , painful agonizing mucous membranes

-Burning and itching in the vulva and vagina

-Itching can also be a reaction to chemicals or ingredients in soaps, creams, contraceptive foams and prepackaged douching mixtures. These mixtures can alter the bacterial balance and acidity of the vagina that protect it against infections.

-Abnormal bleeding

-Bleeding after sexual activities:
Bleeding during or after intercourse in a woman of any age could indicate a vaginal infection, a vaginal tear (induced by childbirth), STDs like chlamydia or vaginal dryness. The friction produced during intercourse can irritate dry skin and cause spotting.

-Large amounts of discharge

-Excessive discharge:
Vaginal discharge is the body’s natural mechanism to keep the vagina lubricated and flush out harmful bacteria. 

Normal vaginal discharge – clear or white and does not give off a bad odor. 

A brown or red discharge that occurs right after a menstrual cycle is usually not a matter of concern. However, if you experience brown or red discharge on normal days between periods, seek medical attention as it could be indicative of cervical cancer. 
If it occurs during early pregnancy, it could signify a miscarriage. 

A green or yellow, smelly and froth-like discharge is not normal and may be a sign of trichomoniasis, an STD. 

A watery white, gray or yellow discharge might be a symptom of bacterial vaginosis. While the amount of discharge differs from woman to woman, recurrent and excessive discharge may also indicate bacterial vaginosis.
If you notice any recurrent strong odor, especially a fishy odor,  one that even transfers to your undergarment, it might be a sign of infection.
