Red fluid is your transmission fluid. With the engine running, move the shifter through the gear, holding 5 seconds per gear, and then move the shifter back to park. With the engine running, remove transmission dipstick, wipe it clean, re-insert it completely and remove to check the fluid level.
It is probably coming from one of the transmission hoses from the radiator.
