Red fluid leak

I have a 2010 Equinox, and it just started leaking a red/rust colored liquid. The fluid is near the front of the vehicle. I was doing some research, and it appears one option could be transmission fluid. I plan on calling my dealer after the holiday weekend, but until I do, I am wondering if others have had this happen and what the source of the leak was? My car seems to be functioning just fine...I haven't noticed any changes in engine sound, etc. It's been warm lately so I've been using the air conditioner, so I don't know if it could be related or not.

Thanks for any responses!

Matt,

Thank you for the reply! I have made an appointment with my local dealer for Monday. One question...I purchased my Equinox in July 2009...so very early on with the new style. I hope that whatever the cause of this leak is, is covered by my warranty...it will be 3 years in July, 2012. So, should whatever the cause of the leak is, should be covered by warranty?
