You won't have air con moisture leaking from there,you need to check the pipe work and matrix of the rear heater unit I would say.
What colour fluid is it and is it oily?

Defo not brake fluid from one of the pipes?

There will be an aircon drain only if your car has rear aircon with the vents in the roof, but as has been mentioned the coolant pipes to the rear heater have been known to corrode and leak in that area.
