Brief Answer:
Can be an infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Leakage of fluid from ankle and foot can be due to excessive swelling of the foot. This can be due to an infection like cellulitis or cardiac or renal problem or extreme inflammation. A direct examination and a few tests are needed to find out the exact cause. You can upload a photo of the foot and ankle for a better evaluation.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
