Doubting whether one was in a state of haidh while performing umrah and hajj

Q: My concern is as follows:

Alhamdullillah, Allah Ta'ala has granted me the opportunity on several occasions to perform Umrah, as well as the opportunity of Hajj. The problem is, I have a problem with my haidh. I have an issue with stained discharge. At the time when I performed Umrah and Hajj, I was unaware of the fact that the discharge was in fact haidh. Hence I performed ghusl early, and very likely spotted after. It is very rare that I do not spot. There is a very high possibility that when I performed my Umrah, and Hajj, I required ghusl. Hence I would have performed all fard, wajib and nafl tawaaf in a state of impurity. Are the Umrah, and Hajj valid? Is any damm required from my side?

A: If you are not sure and doubting whether you were in the state of haiz, regard your hajj and umrah as valid. If you are certain that you were in the state of haiz then explain whether you performed tawaaf in the state of haiz. If you performed tawaaf in the state of haiz, then explain to us which tawaaf you had performed in the state of haiz so that we may inform you of the sharee ruling.

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