In brief: Self breast exam

Self breast exam in a premenopausal woman should be done shortly after menses has started(days3-7).
Probably better while taking a shower. Should be systematic and feeling aroud the breast in counterclockwise fashion. Finally inspecting the nipples and gently squezzing it looking for any discharge. The most important thing is to know your breast so you can pick up a change.

In brief: Focus on our normal

Focus on learning what's normal for you and your body.
Then if there's something different or drawing your attention particularly if it's persistent then contact your doctor and let them evaluate.
