Question Mare acting like she's in foal!?

So, today I went out to go see my mare and she kept turning her rear end to me. I finally got the halter on and took her to the arena, there I noticed the muscles around her tailhead were getting very flappy. I ignored this and did her daily lounge. I tied her and went to go get a saddle to ride. Before I left she started pacing and pulling and urinating quite a bit. I came back and she was squatting but not peeing, instead she was discharging some fluid. At first I thought she may be coming into heat but she wasn't "winking" I untied her and lounged her. Everytime I asked her to whoa or switch she backed up into me and showed her rear. She's been on pasture with my gelding and hasn't acted like this until now. I decided not to ride because of her bizarre behaivor and instead took the saddle off. I noticed she wasn't sweating on her chest or between her legs but only on her neck and flanks. I turned her back out to pasture and she started squatting and not getting anything but a very colorloss/foggy liquid out. She also was poofing herself up and hunching over. She did pass manure so I'm not too worried about colic. I just now came back in and consulted the horseowners of america . Got any explanation/advice?
UPDATE: I just went out and checked on her and her bags haven't swollen but her teats are hardened, and she has some strange little white spots on them.
