Next time you are in to see your doctor, please ask them about it to be sure.
Is the skin red and inflamed? You said you have colostrum already - do you see any blood in it? Does your breast feel hot to the touch? Are you showing any symptoms of the flu, like fever, body aches, head aches? If you see any of these signs, please call your doctor, they could be indicative of a bigger problem.
However, given the symptoms that you've described, it really sounds like your breasts are trying to grow in preparation for breastfeeding, and it's pulling on some scar tissue.
