    you should tell your mom. I dont think you'll be able to go by yourself until you're 16.

    There's a few things you can get that are not STI's, you could probably go to a sexual health clinic or the GP yourself.

    You can see a doctor by yourself at any age, but under 16 your parents have some access to your medical records and may need to consent to treatments for you.
    That's kinda for the more serious stuff though. For a basic appointment or minor ailment your parents are unlikely to be involved if you're old enough to understand what the doctor is saying.

    There is a small pile of yeast and bacterial infections you can get without being sexual with anyone else.

    It depends on what you mean by 'serious' - yeast infections can make you increasingly itchy and sore for example, while bacterial ones can end up with some very smelly discharges - but the earlier you get checked, the easier and simpler the treatment will be.

    With your description of 'clumpy' it sounds like a simple yeast infection, although im not a Dr. Its very common and one of the joys of being a woman that you can get random infections down below. Thankfully they are pretty easily treated. Tell your mum and make an appointment, honestly its no biggie.
