Hm not too normal to have discharge like that. She might have a bit of an upper respiratory infection or something - time for the vet!

When a rabbit has a health issue, it is best to not wait, and to get your rabbit to the vet ASAP. They can get sick very quickly.

well the thing is that i dont have a vet for lilly yet and on sundays my local pet store has a bunch of vets come and have a check up on people's pets so i was wondering if it can wait until then btw shes had that for a while like almost a month. i thought that she just kept licking her nose a lot (bc she does that) until i found out that discharges can be on the nose =:X

Vet, ASAP. URIs can be VERY serious, and you want to take care of it as soon as possible.

I wonder if the vets that come to the pet store on Sundays are rabbit savvy or not. It's very possible that they are only knowledgeable about dogs and cats. You should either check out the links here for rabbit savvy vets in your area, or start calling around and questioning the vets in your area to see if there are any good rabbit savvy ones.

How is her breathing?  Is she pooing, eating and drinking normally or are you seeing some issues with that. 

Also, I ditto what tobyluv questioned -- Do you know if the vets at the pet store on Sunday rabbit-savvy?  If you don't know, call the store and ask if they know, or get a list of the names and find out who they are.

That sounds great!  Most likely, if there is an infection, you will need to pay for the meds though, but usually they start with baytril and that's not that expensive -- around $25

I noticed Belle had a slightly wet nose a few days after I brought her home so I phoned up the breeder I got her from and she said it could be house dust and that indoor bunnies can get it especially in bedrooms (like Belle). So I hoovered up (there was dog hair in my room too from when the dog was allowed in) and made sure I'd done it thoroughly and now Belle is fine and her little nose isn't wet. I think she was just irritated. Worth giving the space she's in a good dusting and hoovering just to eliminate that factor. It might not cure it like it did for Belle but it certainly could help!

I know that there is no dust in my house (well at least where Lilly is allowed) because my mom's employees clean the house every day

also I was cleaning Lilly's cage today and I saw that she had big bunches of poo that looked like a pod of grapes the poops were very small and they stuck to the floor and the broom I'm really scared for her

The cecals (or cecotropes or night droppings) you saw are the ones the bunny eats to ingest remaining nutrients that were not broken down through the first pass. Cecals are vital to a rabbit's health, but you typically never see them because they are eaten directly "from the source". If she's leaving cecals, this may mean that her diet is too rich.

Please read this article when you get a chance... it details rabbit poop and what to look for and what isn't good. http://www.bio.miami.edu/hare/poop.html

$55 is about the norm where I am. And on the cheap side of that too

I'd just pay it, you really need a vet to check her out as soon as possible.
