Might be the type of synthetic oil that was used on the last oil change, some have a red tint. If you concerned perform an oil change and fix an leaks you might have. How is the valve cover gasket or oil filter housing gasket?

I'd change the oil to make sure, use synthetic oil. ATF is red, so maybe that was poured in by accident, but I doubt it?
