Yes, but abnormal : It's possible to leak milk if not pregnant. That's called galactorrhea. It's not normal, though, and warrants a proper investigation. Try to see a board certified reproductive endocrinologist who would be a type of doctor to specialize in this sort of thing.

Nipple discharge: Nipple discharge in a woman who's not pregnant or breast-feeding isn't necessarily abnormal, but should be evaluated by a doctor. A nipple discharge may look milky, or it may be yellow, green, brown or bloody. Nonmilk discharge comes out of your breasts through the same nipple openings that carry milk. The consistency of nipple discharge varies from thick and sticky to thin and watery.
