Default Help! Hamster cold, barely moving, discharge

I went to check on my hamster today and saw her sleeping randomly in the middle of her cage. This is strange because she has never done this in the entire two years that I have owned her. I rustled some things and she didn't respond until I lightly tapped. However, she slightly moved then continued to be still. I picked her up and noticed she was very cold to the touch. I have been trying to warm her up for about 20 minutes but no difference.
I have also noticed a dark red/brown discharge coming from her genitals. I'm not sure what is going on or what should I do. Does anyone think she might be passing??

It does sound like she is on the way to the bridge. She is quite elderly for a hamster at 2 and it sounds like she has a pyometra which is a womb infection. Once they cannot maintain their temperature they are really very ill. I would tuck her in warm in her nest and see how she is later. If she is unable to pass on her own then get in touch with the vets as you may need to help her on her way. I'm so sorry.
