Welcome to JustAnswer.If you put your finger in the fluid I bet you will find it's just water. If it has no real oil odor it's nothing to worry about.The A/C evaporator that's inside the vehicle behind the glove box has a drain for condensation. The A/C acts as a dehumidifier so the moisture it gathers will drain out the bottom through a rubber drain tube. The location you describe is exactly where the moisture will collect on the ground under your vehicle. This is normal and nothing to worry about. High humidity days or using the A/C on fresh(outside air) will cause more moisture. Using the recirculate setting will improve A/C performance and reduce fuel consumption. This will also condition the air in the vehicle and produce less moisture. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you.
