It depends on the discharge I think. If it is clear and smells sweet - indicators of amniotic fluid - then I would first call the doctor and let him/her know, but give yourself a day of hydration and relaxing before going in. Leaking fluid isn't always a bad thing. Your body replenishes the fluid throughout the day so it is usually making up for what is leaking. If after a day of resting and hydrating you still notice this discharge then call again to be seen. Your doctor will likely test to see if it is indeed fluid and then will likely send you for a non-stress test. Chances are you will be given some sort of bed rest. What is probably the most important though is a) increasing your fluid, b) increasing vitamin c (to help control bacteria and such) and c) keeping anything and everything out of your vagina. Over time the body *usually* repairs small tears and you will probably notice the leak go away.
