Hi, Anon.

Thanks for reaching out to our community.

Both abnormal and normal nipple discharge can be clear, yellow, white, or green in color. Normal nipple discharge more commonly occurs in both nipples and is often released when the nipples are compressed or squeezed. Some women who are concerned about breast secretions may actually cause it to worsen, so I'd advice not squeezing your nipples.

For more detailed information on breast discharge, I've provided a resource link below.
