Fluid Leak?! Help!!!

Ok so did an EGR delete last weekend with no problems. Been drivin fine, noticed about a 1.5-2 mpg gain! I've been looking under the truck religiously for leaks an so forth, walked out this afternoon and notice that I have a small puddle, mostly absorbed into the concrete of light brown fluid that's dripping from the pass tranny lines. It's not coming from the tranny lines just dripping off them. I did the old rub, smell test. No smell and wasn't oily it also didn't bead water when I washed it off and it didnt have that coolant smell. Any ideas??? Just started over the last 6 hrs and I drove it all week no prob

taste it. you'll know for sure if its coolant or oily, a lot of times you can't smell a small amount of coolant
