Bluish leak under passenger side door

For the past couple days I've seen a dried up puddle of bluish liquid under my car. Well, today I decided to find the source. I thought it might be windshield washer fluid or maybe coolant. But when I came home I saw a leak coming from under the passenger side door, near the front jack point. Can anyone tell me what this might be from? It looks clear with a faint bluish tint. Thanks in advance!

I thought I should add that there are no codes and the car runs fine otherwise.

It's windshield wiper fluid. The reservoir sits in the rear of the right front fender behind the plastic wheel wheel liner. It must be leaking. You can pull the wheel, remove the fender liner and investigate.

Agreed. When my washer fluid pump was leaking it dripped in the same place.

Thanks! I put a small tupperware cup underneath the leak and it looks like windshield wiper fluid. I appreciate the advice! Thanks!

Responding a little late but my windshield washer fluid is leaking too. My reservoir is fine but the tube leading to it is cracked. Glue didn't work so I just bought the tube off of eBay for 15 bucks, easy 30 min installation.
