nose dripping water-like fluid

Hi, just wondering if anyone can help with the below issue. For the last year or so, I have noticed that when I bend over even slightly, a fluid like water (not mucus, probably..) is leaking from my left nostril only. It doesn't happen every time, but it has been happening more often. I don't have any other symptoms whatsoever, I don't have a cold or stuffed nose and no allergies that I know of. I should probably note that I had rhinitis in the past, and a deviated septum for which I undertook septum surgery about a year and a half ago. Not sure if this could be relevant, but I would really appreciate any insight on this, as it is very annoying, especially when I am working out. It always happens suddenly and I can't stop it from dripping (e.g. by sniffing). Any ideas?
