couple of things. One it's much easier to read posts if you take your CAPS LOCK KEY OFF. Also, using all caps is considered yelling :)

No, leaking fluid from your nipples is NOT a pregnancy sign. It is a sign you need to see your doctor. You should never leak fluid out of your nipples unless you are still nursing or are at least in your 2nd trimster if not closer to your 3rd.

Well, how old is your 1st and did you BF? I don't think colostrum is a usual early sign of preg. However if you did breastfeed and weaned not too long ago, you can still have some colostrum/milk for months after weaning. I don't remember getting colostrum during preg until like the 2nd trimester (currently TTC #4) however everyone is different. DId you experience this with #1? If you are concerned you could check with your doctor. WHere are you in your cycle? Hugs and I hope you figure it out!

With my DS, I had milk off and on until he was 4. I weaned when he was 1. The dr. told me that is just how some people are. I was just lucky I guess :) I do remember that it would come and go and sometimes bad PMS would bring it back a bit.
