You are having galactorrhea. As many as 25% of women are believed to suffer from Galactorrhea, or inappropriate discharge of milk at some point in their life.. It can be due to a wide variety of reasons. The commonest cause is considered physiological, and not pathological, and is due to fluctuating hormone levels, due to excessive beast stimulation or active sexual activity. All these cause a discharge of milk. There are some other causes like hypothyroisdism, increased prolactin levels, etc, but these are probably unlikely. You should not worry about this, as you see, it is a fairly common problem and will go away spontaneously. You should avoid touching or pressing your breasts too often, dont keep checking to see if there is any discharge by squeezing repeatedly, also do not wear too tight dresses or bras.
At the same time, you should approach a gynaecologist and get the appropriate tests done to rule out any other causes for this secretion.
