Did you have the air conditioner going by any chance? If so if you have had it going for a period of time, your car is in idle or turned off it will leak out water from under the car. The smell could be from when it drained out it came in contact with some oil? Doubt its power steering fluid if its not Red. If it was clear and coming from your steering rack, i will be saying go get your self another power steering rack and pump! You will also find it very difficult to steer if your steering rack is dry.
