It normally is safe to have sex during pregnancy unless there is a problem of some sort. Whilst there are changes with sex during pregnancy (e.g. the vagina may lubricate more and orgasms may be experienced differently due to the changes in the uterus), it would be important to check out what's going on for her given the discharge and pain! I would encourage her to go to her doctor/obstetrician; she should be having a scan about now anyway, so mention this to the professional doing this.
