What is this?!

Hey y'all,

I just noticed a 12-16 inch diameter wet stain under the right front (passenger) side, just in from the right front wheel.
It's not quite water, not quite oil. (see photos below)

Tell me it's not something to be too worried about. And tell me its not my water pump! (I just cancelled my expensive ext/warranty 3 weeks ago!)

Thoughts?

From the location described above, it's a pretty good description of where the water pump is located in the engine compartment. Keep and eye on it.

Only two things in that area are going to be power steering fluid and coolant. I would check under the water pump on the block to see if there is any coolant there. That would be a sign of a coolant leak from the water pump.
