It was better the. A couple weeks later the same nipple became tender again I squeezed it and more came out. What is this and is it normal?

Hello and welcome to HCM
Discharge and bleeding from nipple can occur due to various causes. These causes are:
1. Duct papilloma
2. Duct ectasia
3. Increased prolactin levels causes milk discharge
4. Breast cancer

You need to get mammography of that breast done. Inorder to find out any abnormality of the duct, the duct has to be visualized with a dye.

Thanks and take care
