If a little clear fluid drips out nose when you lean over, does that for sure mean csf leak? Can't that happen from just irritated nasal tissues?

In brief: Likely nasal fluid

It is far more likely to be nasal fluid than CSF.
Your doctor can get the fluid tested for beta transferrin to rule out CSF if that is your concern.
