What is your brake fluid level? If it is coolant then it will smell/taste sweet (it's sugar and alcohol) but if you can get enough of it on your hand (prefurably the back) and in a couple minutes your skin feels "dry" then it is brake fluid. If it's a coolant leak the Rad. Fan _might_ be catching the drip off the water pump and flinging it over but the hood would be wet too. My money's on a bad caliper wiper seal. Remove the tire and caliper and look into the piston area.
Thanks for the pictures but the first one is too dark and the second looks like the caliper is dry.
