How long does non-pregnancy lactation need to last before it becomes a concern?

YANMD, TINMA. I held my newborn niece (6 days old) this past Sunday, and I've been lactating slightly ever since. Slightly=noticeable drops of milk if I squeeze my breasts/nipples, nothing otherwise. I just got a pregnancy test today to confirm I'm not pregnant. I'm on many medications, but haven't added any in the last three months, though I have gone off Wellbutrin. How long does lactation need to last before it becomes a "go see a doctor" concern? I have insurance, but we're too broke for co-pays currently, so if this is a natural reaction to holding an infant, I'd rather not spend $25 I don't have.
