Hi Kellyseye,welcome to GOY. Your plant is possibly oxalis triangularis,try looking this up,or I'm sure other members will recognise this :)

Yep, definitely oxalis triangularis - the flowers are actually palest pink. I have a pic of this in my photos, grown outside in a pot this summer, so probably a stronger colour than yours indoors, have a look if you want
