Need an exam: After 3 - 4 months, wound closure should be sufficient to prevent any seeping. You may have issues with adjacent teeth to the now removed third molars. Go in for a followup exam and don't be surprised if another issue near to the extraction sites is discovered.

See a periodontist: There is a good chance you may have a bone defect where the wisdom teeth were extracted especially if they were angled against your second molars these defects would cause you problems see a periodontist to help you.

Dry sockets???: I would go back to the dentist/oral surgeon who took out the teeth and let them examine your problem areas. Could be nothing or could be a healing issue that should not be ignored.

Do post op: It takes up to 3 month for the extraction site to heal rinse with salt water schedule a post op with the dentist that extracted your teeth.
