hi,thanks for query.Any fluid coming out from breast ,unless you are pregnant is not normal.Please do self examination of your breast with fingers looking in to mirror and try to feel any lump you can feel.Also look for any form of redness or swelling.Please talk to your doctor about this ,and after examination you may need mamography for proper diagnosis.
wishing you good health.
