In brief: Colostrum or milk
In pregnancy, a hormone called prolactin rises to prepare the breast for possible breast feeding.
A nipple discharge called colostrum can occur (like early milk), or sometimes milk is discharged as well. Anything other than clear or white-ish discharge should be discussed with a doctor. Bloody nipple discharge is of great concern.
