Hallo Bambi - if it is not smelling unpleasant and looks like a light yellow creamy discharge, it could be normal for her age. If it is itchy or smells unpleasant she may have a bacterial infection (sometimes due to wiping back to front) Small girls may also get vaginal infections when sexually abused. If you are worried, rather let your doctor have a look.
