It gives us great pleasure that you are concerned about your Salaah. It is indeed a sign of your Imaan. The difficulty you are facing in determining your days of Haydh will be a means of reward for you and not punishment.

Any color discharge besides pure white in the days of Haydh will be considered as Haydh up till ten full days (240 hours)[1].

You may read the translation of Bahishti Zewar (heavenly ornaments) to further acquaint yourself with the rulings of menstruation. Below is the link to the book.
