A: "out of" means you have opened the refrigerator door and removed some milk from within.

Q: What is the difference between A little (ex: I have a little milk) and Little (ex: I have little milk) ?
A: When we say 'a little' we mean a small amount, but it's enough:

• John: Let's go out tonight.
• Lucy: Okay. I have a little money, enough for the cinema at least.

We use ‘little’ with uncountable nouns. It is formal.

Using ‘little’ here gives us a different impression. It also means a small amount, but this time the amount is almost nothing. If the noun is something that we want (like money or friends) then using 'little' means that we don't have enough:

• John: Let's go out tonight.
• Lucy: Sorry, I have little money. I really can't afford to go out.

Little = Not a lot of / Not enough of
A little = A bit of
Q: What is the difference between I have to go to buy some milk. and I have to go buy some milk. ?
A: 1. 牛乳を買う為に(だけ)行く (行かなきゃ)。他の物も買うかもしらないけど、特に牛乳を買わなきゃと言う意味が含まれています。この文には、何の為に行かなければならないかを指しています。
2. 牛乳を買わなければならないから行く。この文には何を買わなければならないかを指しています。

2 の方がよく使われています。Use 1 if you really want to emphasise why you need to go.

I hope that made sense >_< ^^;
Q: What is the difference between I also like milk. and I like also milk. ?
A: It could be either, it depends on the context
