In brief: See an ENT

It could be nothing but clear fluid coming from the nose (rarely) can be leaking spinal fluid.
If you have enough coming out, i would get a sealable small clean dry and catch as many drops as you can so they can run a beta-2-transferrin test on it. You will need about 1/2 a teaspoon worth of fluid to test it. Of course it could just be allergies or a cold!

In brief: Clear rhinorrhea

Common causes of clear rhinorrhea include viral upper respiratory tract infection, and allergic and non-allergic rhinitis.
If this happens after a head or facial trauma/procedure, cerebrospinal fluid leakage should be suspected. If the latter is not the case, see your local pharmacist who can recommend over-the-counter medications. See your doctor if persistent.
