welcome to HCM
As you have mentioned your front teeth had undergone RCT and now are noticing some sort of fluid on it. that must a pus which is coming out from means still the infection is there.
get your IOPA xray done to reveal the status of tooth and visit your dentist again and get it reoperated.
hope this will help you
thank you
