Is there any odor involved? Are you using any type of vaginal creams? Are you sexually active? Is there any pain or itching? If no to all, it is probably the normal flora of the lining.
However, just to be sure, I would see your gynecologist. Depending on your age and sexual activity, you may need to have a pap smear, a sample of cells from the cervical area that are then looked at under the microscope for evaluation.
