Could be as simple as a hose or maybe the reservior. Could also be the rack and pinion. Have it looked at ASAP.

And keep an eye on how quickly the reservoir empties. that's how I found out mine was leaking. I thought (BIG brain fart), before checking the fluid, that my power steering pump was going out and even checked the price (less than $70) on a rebuilt pump. Turned out just to be a small hose leak.
