Multiple causes : The discharge could be the normal discharge of apocrine sweat glands found normally in the nipple. If it is more significant discharge, it may be due to galactorrhea, a condition in which milk is produced at low levels even without pregnancy. Although this can occur on it's own, it sometimes is associated with underlying hormonal changes. See your ob/gyn for evaluation and work up of this issue.
