How hot was the engine when your friend saw the fluid?
At start-up it is not unusual for water vapour to condense in the exhaust system and come out of the tail pipe in a fluid state. This is usually more noticeable in cooler weather conditions but can be seen when the engine is still running under normal operating temperature.
The fluid is fine, staying stedy since I got it. And then engine temp is normal.
From what you said in about the water vapor forming, that's sounds like it could be it. It is starting to cool down, and i think when he saw the fluid coming out, it was after i started my car.
I'll keep and eye on the fluid levels for a while just in case though.
