Discharge before haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: A few days before my haidh, I have a discharge of red cloths when I go to the toilet. Does my haidh start then or only when I start bleeding?


A: If there were 15 days or more that had passed from the time your previous haidh had terminated, and after this discharge you experienced bleeding within ten days, then consider your haidh to have commenced from the time you had seen the discharge. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
