Clear liquid discharge from nose. Water polo athlete. Worry?

I am a former women's water polo athlete and since I was about 15 I would get a clear tear like liquid that would drip from my nose no pain just weird. It seems to happen often I used to think maybe it was pool water or sumthin but it still happens and I'm 20 and I did play college water polo but I quit about 6months ago and it still happens should I be worried?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
There should not be any clear fluid dripping from the nose specially from one side only.
You must get an ENT consultation done and get done ---
chemical analysis for sugar and protein of the fluid which drips down
MR Cisternography to see for the fluid

It could be nasal discharge --but chances are less.if there is no cold and the fluid is watery
Another possibility is Cerebrospinal fluid which is protective fluid around brain , and this should not drip, so you need to get it ruled out.
