Hi,
Nipple discharge is normal and very common when the breasts are squeezed and it's rarely a sign of breast cancer,especially when it's bilateral.This usually occurs when women are pregnant or taking some type of medication,such as birth control pills or tranquillizers.Other causes,if you are not pregnant, could be hormonal imbalance.  
Please don't worry...Just avoid nipple stimulation( including frequent checks for discharge)  because it can actually make the discharge persist.If you stop squeezing the nipple,most probably the discharge will also stop and so will the pain.
When to be alarmed about nipple discharge,it's when it happens only on one side, comes out spontaneously( without squeezing),is persistent and bloody or is associated with a lump, nipple or skin changes etc...
If you are worried,you should consult your doctor for a clinical examination to clear out any doubt okay?
Take care...
