Mucus Liquid Seeping from Left Nostril?

I had rhinoplasty 2 weeks ago and when I place pressure on the nasal bone to tape down my nose, mucus drizzles out of my left nostril, should I be concerned?

It is not unusual for a patient to have some nasal drainage 2 weeks after surgery. This will depend on many factors including what was done during the surgery, the presence of allergies, etc. However check with your surgeon.
