Dripping flourescent green fluid

Found several small droplets of liquid under the front passenger side of my 2018 Enclave. Checked the coolant, as that was my first guess but it is RED! Took the car to the dealer where they found an oil leak at the timing cover gasket [coincidence??] and they currently have it on a lift to replace the gasket (less than 14,000 miles!).

But that still doesn't explain the green droplets? They have no idea of what it is (I even took a small sample on paper towel to show them)! Anyone have any idea on what this mystery liquid could be?

Since the radiator doesn't use green my only guess would be the leak detection dye from the AC system. But with a new car I can't imagine why that would be in there.

So apparently GM includes the leak trace dye from the factory. I don't know if that's genius or them just admitting their crap is going to leak at some point.

Not only GM. Had a 15
Grand Cherokee and noticed the green on an ac line. Sure enough it had a leak.
