Default Ear discharge

A little while ago I noticed that Annabelle has yellow goo (earwax, I'm assuming) coming out of her right ear. I can't really *see* the discharge, but it has discolored the white hair around her ears, turning it yellow. Is this relatively normal, or sign of an ear infection? Both ears have a bit of discharge, but the right ear is worse. Her ears don't seem sensitive or painful or anything... I touch them regularly because I put vaseline on them to prevent dryness. Do you think she might have an infection? Is it worth a trip to the vet?
