In brief: Worried no, but...

Need to worry? no.
IUD's can and do fail to prevent implantation resulting in ectopic pregnancies.(outside of the uterus) which can be problematic. At the very least you may have a prolactin secreting growth which may account for the leaking breasts if you are not taking other drugs that can do that as well. Obtain a prolactin and serum pregnancy test at your MD's office to clear up the concerns.
