Regarding the ghusl haiz, when should it be performed; is there a fixed number of days or as and when the woman is clean. Also the status of the fast in case the woman has performed ghusl and then in the afternoon discovers that some yellow spots come up.

The answer to your question is as follows:

The minimum period of haiz is three days and maximum is ten days. Some women have schedule i.e. fixed days of menstruation (five, six or seven days). So they should perform gusl after their fixed days and offer Namaz. If the bleeding goes beyond the scheduled days but discontinues within ten days then it will be considered menstruation and every ruling of menses will apply, e.g. exemption from salah, prohibition of tilawah etc

If the bleeding continues for more than 10 days, then the bleeding exceeding the previous schedule will be considered as of non-menstruation and the missed prayers will have to be performed.

If there was no permanent schedule, then ten days of bleeding will be considered menses and the rest will be non-menses. The salah missed during menses is exempted, while a woman has to do qaza of salah missed in the state of non-menses bleeding.

Blood with yellow colour is also blood of haiz if it comes within the period of haiz. (And Allah knows best)
