In brief: Needs to be checked

Nipple discharge may be physiologic or pathologic.
If the discharge is bilateral and from multiple duct openings it is unlikely to be due to a breast malignancy. The discharge from one nipple and one ductal opening is more concerning to be secondary to a lesion within the duct such as a papilloma and occasionally breast cancer. There are many other causes. It is best to have it checked medically.
