Unhappy Unknown leak. Need help.

Today i looked under my hood and there seemed to be something sprayed on the air intake side of the engine. At first I thought it was brake fluid but after closer examination I noticed it was what looked to be grease with metal shavings in it. It looked to be coming from the powersteering pump. But I am not sure. I was wondering if you guys could help.
