This liquid that you describe is not what we would normally find in a motor car, so what I will do is describe as best I can what we would normally consider usual fluids associated with your car and may be this will help solve this problem.
1 Engine oil, will be black thick & very identifiable as oil
2 Transmission oil Red in colour thinner than engine oil
3 power steering fluid, same as trans oil.
4 Brake fluid, More a water type consistency but more tactile to touch, can be clear to opaque in colour or blue or green, often will foam up a little if washed whit water.
5 Engine coolant, water based usually mixed with an anti freeze or anti boil corrosion inhabiter, comes in many colours, you will see yours if you check the surge tank.
6 washer fluid, water often mixed with a soluition of mild solvents to clean dirt from the screen.
7 A/C drain off, when the A/C is on moisture from the air is condensed with in the unit and drained away via a tube under the car, this will be clear water.
I hope that this is some help in identifing your problem.
