This may well be a sign of readiness to give birth - it may be a placental discharge. Look for signs of nesting also -> may look for a safe place to give birth e.g. in a cupboard, closet or under the bed etc. As long as she is eating and drinking she should be OK although this may also reduce shortly before birth. If the discharge has a greeny colour to it and has a foul smell, then it should be checked out as maybe there are dead kittens in there which need to come out asap. I am assuming that she is current on her vaccines since there are many viral diseases that can cause stillbirths and abortions.
Hope all goes well.
