Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort.

Well, you should be seen by doctor, and few tests will be advised and accordingly you will be advised management.

The common causes for pink discharge along with burning pain after menopause are-

-Hormone problems,
-Atrophy of the vagina,
-Polyps (small growths) in the uterus or on the cervix,
-Ovarian tumor,
-Hyperplasia (enlarged cells) of the lining of the uterus.

You will be requiring blood tests along with scan for evaluation of cause. You should have a Pelvic examination to assess the condition of the cervix and investigations like TVS Ultrasound for further evaluation.

Please see Gynecologist, Once tests are done accordingly line of treatment would be advised.

I hope this helps.
