Hello,
Thanks for providing more information.

Non milk discharge coming through nipple can be caused due to causes like -

Glactorrhea (it is the white nipple discharge due to hormonal imbalance)

Mammary duct ectasia(in this condition nipple becomes inflamed, and causes discharge)

Papilloma.

As she has single episode of such clear discharge so chances of slight inflammation of mammary duct can be a possible cause.

And you can wait for a while for any new symptoms.

 

However a repeat mammogram should be advised at your next regular follow-up with your doctor.

In the meantime she should palpate her breast everyday to feel any soreness,lump formation on breast.

Motrin and warm compresses can be helpful.

In case she develops recurrent discharge and soreness on breast then consult your doctor ASAP.
