so i went to start my car this morning and noticed a small wet stain on the drivers side of my car right behind the bumper almost..i backed the car up and notice it was still dripping. i then touched it it seemed watery just wondering if anyone knows what it might be or what i should be looking for when i jack the car up?

Is it coming from your exhaust pipe? If so - it's normal.

A/C drips water as well - you didn't mention front or back bumper.

I don't know where our water pump is located...

yeah if its slippery its def not windshield fluid, my guess is antifreeze. you should check the lower radiator hose and sensor for residue. Then check the waterpump for residue.
