    try this:

    final Bitmap bitmap = ((BitmapDrawable)imageView.getDrawable()).getBitmap();
    imageView.setOnTouchListener(new OnTouchListener(){
            public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event){
            int x = (int)event.getX();
            int y = (int)event.getY();
            int pixel = bitmap.getPixel(x,y);
            //then do what you want with the pixel data, e.g
            int redValue =;
            int blueValue =;
            int greenValue =;        
            return false;

    You can compute the image coordinates of the pixel that was clicked and read the pixel from the image data, like
