Please Help, 09 dodge caliber.......... Leaking?

I have a 09 dodge caliber, noticed a strange smell the other day, open the hood and I noticed a little clear smoke from one of the bolts I believe on my intake manifold? The car is not overheating, what could it be? I noticed my windshield wiper cleaner thingy was loose and flopping around but I dont think that’s it it.

Well, the cap is on there to stop the fluid from sloshing out while you drive so I think that could very well be it.

Looks like exhaust manifold heat shield. It gets hot. There should be no fluid there. Should be several similar bolts holding it to manifold. The other bolt holes have no liquid puddling?

no just that one ((left side))
