Possibly normal: The breast/nipple can have discharge/drainage of many different colors. White discharge is likely a benign discharge, but see your doctor to have it checked out.

See your doctor: Bloody nipple discharge is very concerning. Sometimes, but not always, associated with cancer. May be benign, but you need to see a surgeon.
