Nope it's totally normal. it's just condensation as the cold pipe warms up. You may notice it dripping out of your muffler as well. The muffler actually has a small weep hole to let the water out.

Normal, by product of the catalytic converter http://chemwiki.ucdavis.edu/Physical_Chemistry/Kinetics/Case_Studies%3A_Kinetics/Catalytic_Converters

I agree with both above,if you are not loosing coolant.

That's why they began making mufflers out of non-corrosive material ... if you let that water sit in the bottom of a regular steel muffler ... in 3 years your looking for a "Bull Dog Muffler Patch" to patch the rust hole
