How to know if I have fluid behind my eardrum? I can make a fluid/watery sound everytime i want. Also comes when swallowing/chewing. Is that it?

In brief: Fluid = hearing loss

Fluid behind your ear drum leads to hearing loss.
What you are describing is either incomplete wax impaction of your ear canal or an issue with ear pressurization or both. See an ENT for evaluation.
