Leaking Something, Help!

Hello,

I got my other issues fixed. But today after doing about 4 hours of Body work to my focus. I noticed it was Leaking something.

Its dripping on the Drivers Side (front).
its NOT coolent, doesn't have a sweet smell.
Its Light Blueish/Greenish in Color (Dont seem to have the Windshield Wash Smell) Its not Oily.

Its dripping from a Piece of Medal. All Fluids were okay (checked all Res's)

I Also Noticed, my Air Filter Box is Leaking something from the Screw (Looks like a Type of Lubrication. I tried taking the Box off today, but couldnt get one of the screws out (One not causing the problems) so i gave up with it and screwed it all back together.

What do you think it could be? No Check Engine Lights, or any overheating issues. I did just have a Car wash the day before. But when I got home an hour ago, it still was Doing it.

Any Help, before taking it into the Dealership to get it looked at.
Thanks!

I topped it off with water, and drove around the block.

It was lower than what it was at before.
So I used all the windshield wash, and then it stopped leaking eventually.
But i looked like an idiot with my windshield wash and wipers going for 10 minutes straight... aha.

Anyone know why there would be Liquid coming out of my Air Filter Box. Ill take Pictures tomorrow of where it is.

I'm taking it into my Mechanic to get my Oil Changed, and the Leak fixed (as im too lazy to take off my front bumper and fender.)

Warm Regards

Mine does that I lost the gasket that is under the cap. And by the way it splashes everywhere when full. I took a piece of duct tape cut it to size and stuck it under the cap no more leaks.
