More than likely it is coming from the transmission cooler inside the radiator. Make sure and get it checked out, and have the transmission fluid level checked, you don't want to run low to cause damage to the transmission.

Brown oil is engine oil possibly from failed head gasket. Pink or reddish oil is transmission fluid.
