Retracted nipples are usually due to fibrotic band below the nipple and may get corrected during breast feeding or may require surgical correction if required.

It may not be related to your radioactive iodine treatment and i would also suggest you to get your thyroid blood tests done and titrate the thyroxine dose as required
