|SarahBella97||Okay thank you. I was planning on taking him for a wellness check anyways since I'm 98% certain his previous owners never took him. I'll get him in ASAP. pneumonia is something I definitely don't want him to get!|

I would look at it this way; even if there's nothing wrong, it's always good to take a new pet to the vet soon after getting them. Better to establish a relationship with a vet before there is anything wrong than to meet a vet for the first time when your baby is sick and you're in a panic.
Now, that being said, a runny nose can be indicative of an upper respiratory infection. No big deal so long as you catch early and get it treated. Usually just a round of antibiotics. However, if it's not dealt with quickly it can become pneumonia, and no one wants that.

Whenever I wake Pickles up and hold him in my hands, a clear liquid comes out of his nose and makes my hand wet. This happens during his huffing and when he's sniffing around. He will also lick his nose quite a bit he's been doing that since I got him a week ago. I haven't noticed anything else wrong with him he seems perfectly fine otherwise. No weird breathing sounds, runs on his wheel and eats his food. His poop looks normal as well. One thing I've noticed is that he doesn't come out that much at night other than running on his wheel for maybe 5 minutes and eating (im thinking thats just because hes still getting used to his new environment). The first couple of nights he drank his bowl dry but not the last night or so :/ he's 2 years old if that helps at all. I don't want anything to be wrong with him I'm going to call the vet on Monday since they are closed Sundays
He does make this kind of squeaking sound when he's awake it's pretty quiet I'm not are if that's a normal sound or not
