What do you think

My best friend is 36 weeks 4 days and has been having really bad cramping and pressure for weeks. She was on Nifedipine but her dr took her off of it since she is far enough along to have him. Today she is having a lot of yellow discharge. The cramping and pressure is still there too. Do you think it's her mucus plug or could it be something more serious like an infection???
