In brief: Pituitary, meds
The two most common problems for discharge from both breasts is medications (antidepressants, antipsychotics, etc) and pituitary problems (check the prolactin blood level).
If only from one breast, sometimes this can be from a cyst, abscess, etc.

In brief: Nipple discharge
Could be secondary to increase activity of the pituitary gland, hypothyroidism, pituitary adenoma(tumor of the gland), medications, chronic stimulation of the nipples, breast cancer.
In any event this needs to be evaluated by physical exam and lab tests.
