Something is leaking!!

There is something leaking under my truck and it is all over the catalytic converter, i noticed it today when i pulled up and i smelt almost like burnt rubber and whatever is leaking is like the color of my brake fluid but could any1 tell me where it could be coming from or what fluid is leaking? Thanks, Garrett

Well when i was saying it was the color of my brake fluid i was trying to describe the color (a reddish brown color). I couldnt find a definite place where the leaking was coming from but my cat is soaked in it.

Ok.. first off... if your brake fluid is "reddish brown color" get it flushed...

Second off it sounds like a tranny leak

3rd off... take a picture

Im not able to get a picture right now but i found the leak and its coming from where the transmission connects to the driveshaft. Could there be a bad seal or something? Would it be covered under warranty?
