Hiya all, call me paranoid or something but today I just noticed that there was a small puddle of liquid under the car. It looks seems like it's just water to the touch and smell. Is that something I should be concerned about? Tried taking a picture with my handy dandy camera too. 

 

Might just be condensation from the a/c? well still a noobie with car stuff as this is my first car =p

If it's roughly underneath the passenger footwell/glovebox/firewall then it'll be the air-con evaporatordrain, the evaporator gets so cold that it can't hold any humidity which precipitates out of the air and then drains down a small tube on to the ground, look under any car on a hot day that has had the air-con running and you'll see it

Agree with reply - Don't worry if its clear odourless liquid - most likely water.
