Doubting whether the discharge is mazi or mani

Q: I have a question which always brings doubt to me with regards to ghusal. This happens to me all the time like this morning when I got back home from fajr I went to use the bathroom and on taking out my underpants I found a tiny dot of wetness and small white marks on my underwear. I then urinated and whilst urine emitted I watched to see if anything odd is emitted, I found that a little of white liquid came out as well which was sticky. Is this mani or mazi? I always get confused and then get waswasas. Do I have to make ghusal or do I just put on clean underpants and make wudhu?

A: If you are doubting whether it is mazi or mani then wash that area and make ghusl.

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