Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause (for the discharge you describe) without examining you. The symptom could be suggestive of pregnancy, infection or inflammation in breast tissue (if associated with pain and redness etc), pregnancy, or hormonal imbalance. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Get started on treatment as indicated.
Take care.
