2013 WRX Yellow Fluid Leak

This started over Thanksgiving weekend, as one of my friends noticed a small puddle of fluid leaking from my WRX. It seemed to have stopped the next day so I dismissed it.

Yesterday as I was leaving work, I noticed the same fluid dripping onto one of the white lines that separates parking spots and noticed it was yellow. I got home and noticed it continue to drip. When I got out to the car this morning, the leaking seemed to have stopped at which point I snapped the pic below:


Given my limited mechanical knowledge I wasn't able to determine what sort of fluid it is. It seems to be leaking from or next to, the joint pictured. My guess was perhaps transmission fluid. It doesn't smell like anything. I've noticed no change in my car's performance. Only mods on the car are an Invidia Q300 CBE and a 91octACN Stage 1 COBB tune. Car has 8k miles on it now, serviced around 5k, oil changed religiously every 3k. I DID however just track the car at Thunderhill Raceway about two weeks ago with no issues whatsoever. Drove it there and back (over 6 hours total) no problem.

If someone with much more knowledge than I could chime in I would be very grateful. Thanks for reading.

no nearly enough info. but by the lack of info provided and decent pic, i would say maybe a control arm bushing? i just replaced my rear big one and it was slimy and leaking. how was texture or fluid? viscosity? was it thin? or thick and slimy? thick and slimy is either gear oil (tranny-MT) or bushing grease. anything other than that would be engine oil or coolant. GL!
