How old is she? Sounds like she is coming into heat.

I see this fairly often on farms including my own, with particularly hard water.

It does not appear to have any negative consequences. When you run citric acid to clean your lines I bet it goes away doesn't it?

We have city water, She was exposed to boar in July but show no signs except one side of milk dropped, she swells and gets very red, but goes down and now this discharge, just not sure what to do with her, She should have pigglets by Oct 15th but I've had several ppl say they think she isnt preganat . Is there any way to tell if she is preganat? Yes, Im new at this, this is our 1st litter

You could have someone ultrasound her or wait until the 15th. The discharge in her urine is likely not a reproductive problem.
