Wouldnt worry too much about it, as long as it doesnt continue. Check and make sure all your fluids are at correct levels.

What color was the fluid?
You mave have just knocked the coolant reservoir cap loose. Double check to make sure it's on securely.

Looks like it was oil some how. Guess while at work it dripped out the cap. It's on and running burning all the bits of oil from the headers. White smoke

Send a message via MSN to signpimp
oil might have creeped up the crankcase vent into the airbox, or dripped out onto whatever. If it's connected to the airbox, you might want to clean it out.
