Seeing a coloured discharge three days before one's haidh

Q: It was the time of my period and I got a peach discharge, it wasn't a dark peach. So I asked my teacher and she said that it is my period. (I don’t get any colour discharge during my tuhur period). so I took it as my period, I never discharged more of this colour, I discharged clear and white. I only started bleeding 3 days after I saw the peach discharge. Please advise whether the 3 days in which I saw nothing was actually my period, or did my period only start when I started bleeding. This happened during Ramadhaan.

A: If prior to the coloured discharge there was 15 complete days of tuhr or more then this coloured discharge will be regarded as the commencement of your haiz.

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