Light pink discharge before period..second month in a row...no other symptoms present

This is now the second time I've had light pink discharge before my period. My period is pretty regular for the most part. I've been experiencing breast tenderness like I would before any period. And I've been using condoms during sex. The first time I experienced the light pink discharge I had it for almost a week. Then after that I had a full 7 day period.

During my period last month, the guy I had been sleeping with was informed by one of his former partners that she tested positive for Chlamydia. So of course I went and got tested, but I went to two separate clinics and all they offered was testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. My results came back negative for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Also, I got treated on the spot for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. I got antibiotics and a shot of penicillin. I was told not to drink alcohol for 72hours, but I ended up drinking anyway. So I thought maybe that caused the medication to not work. The only symptoms I had were unusual discharge(white, not very thick, no odor, excessive amount) and light pink discharge before period(is that considered spotting?). But after getting treated for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea these symptoms went away for about a week or two.

So originally I just thought I had Chlamydia, but since my test came back negative it must be something else. What other things/infections can cause light pink discharge? I know pregnancy can cause light pink discharge. But since this is the second time this has happened, and I've been using condoms, I don't think I'm pregnant.

Obviously I need to go see a doctor to know for sure what going on, but I have no health insurance. Its been difficult to find free clinics where I live. I'm going to have to go get a pap-smear to find out whats wrong?

Today, I spoke with a "Health Educator" from the clinic where I went to to get tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. I told him about how the discharge went away for a few weeks after that treatment, but now its returned. His response was, "Are you still sleeping with the same partner? If so, then he gave you something else". Then he was suppose to transfer me over to someone else to make an appointment to see a doctor, but never did. This Health Educator was very abrupt, kinda of an asshole, and what he said really scared me. He didn't give me an chance to explain myself in full detail. I don't have other symptoms that would make me think its some other STI. He gave me his card when I came to get tested, so I figured I'd ask him questions, but I guess I should have spoke with a doctor. When you call the number for this clinic it gives you a bunch of options, and they gave that Health Educators ext. for information about STIS. I was obviously confused about who to contact at this clinic. That phone call was extremely frustrating and scary. I think I might be better off going to Planned Parenthood.
