Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Any discharge other than that of pregnancy is not normal and should be evaluated for the cause . Mastitis is on top of the list . Get your surgeon to have a look at it. They will run some baseline workup, do a breast examination and ultrasound of the mammary tissues if needed to see if there is any collection there and then manage accordingly. Don't delay and reach out to your doctor as soon as possible.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
