I drove home today and noticed there was some fluid splashed around my rim and tires on the driver side only....any ideas what could have caused this.

Take your tire off and have a look at the brakes and brake lines

I have no idea of your experience or age or anything since you have almost no info in your profile..... When you checked the brakes was someone looking at the line and caliper on that side while someone else was pumping the brakes?
