Coolant leak

Opened the hood to add washer fluid and then found this orange coolant leaking. Is this a cause for alarm?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like the over flow tank is cracked. Replace it.

Decided to trade the 2012 Focus with 103250 miles and 5 clutch replacements with a 2017 Toyota Camry SE with 12250 miles.

Really loved my Focus but it is starting to become a money pit now that the warranty expired.

I'm on #4 right now. I only have 2 more on the shelf. I grab at least one minty one every-time I go to the junkyard.
