I had a clumpy white non smelling discharge that i tasted just a tiny bit to see if it had a strong taste (acidic), then realized after i had talked to my doctor that if it is a yeast infection (which it apparently is), that i could get thrush? what the possibility of this actually happening??? how quickly will i know? and is there anything i can do to stave this off? (on antiobiotics which i am sure triggered this).

No. Oral thrush is typically connected with diseases that have severely suppressed the immune system (HIV, for example). Simply tasting what might be a yeast infection will not give you oral thrush.
