You have a busted fork seal. You should not be riding the bike because it can cause you to have problems controlling the bike.

1.) Fork oil gets on brakes - It will be very hard to stop
2.) Bike won't react as expected when giving inputs in cause the bike to lurch once you have lost to much fork fluid making any sort of maneuver at speed become dangerous.

Call patrick for sure he will take care of you.
