Your line runs from the reservoir in the fender well, up through the hose around the strut plate on top, through the bezel to the wipers. If you have no leaks, Replace the washer motor. If you fill it and it leaks, fix the leaks. To access the reservoir. Remove the tire and inner fender well on the passenger side.
Is a old school habit to top up fluids, if is low is , then there is a leak, or somebody serviced wrong, the reservoir that you are mentioned is call inverter reservoir, it uses long life toyota coolant, if the water pump leaks it is the one that will get low.
for the record, the only fluid that you refill is the windshield washer fluid.
try and fill up the washer bottle with water for test and use it. if you hear the pump work keep using it till you see where fluid is leaking out. my guess is a hose is broken and all the fluid is leaking out
Typically, on a GM truck, there are two 10mm bolts at the top of the reservoir which hold the reservoir to the fenderwall. Remove these bolts, lift straight up on the reservoir, and the tabs cast into the bottom of the reservoir will slip out of their slots in the fenderwall. Remove the reservoir only so far as required to locate and unplug the washer motor wiring harness. The motor sometimes does not come with the replacement reservoir. There are 2, 3, or 4 bolts which hold the motor to the reservoir, and there is a gasket between the motor and the reservoir body. Remove, retain, and re-use these parts on the new reservoir. Check the fluid line near the motor for cracks, and shorten enough to re-use if necessary.
That is the area the air conditioner vent drains. There aren't a lot of fluids possible - coolant, power steering fluid and transmission fluid are the only ones that would be in that position unless your windshield washer fluid leaks from the tubing. Brake fluid would be closer to the wheels. If the air conditioner runs at all it removes moisture from the passenger compartment and drains near the passenger side firewall. All the other fluids would hae a definite smell.
There is a reservoir attached to your power steering pump, which is mounted on the front of your engine. A stick gauge is attached to the reservoir cap when you remove it. Add the proper power steering oil directly into that reservoir if needed. Do not overfill, respect gauge mark.
If it's a power steering fluid leak, most probable it comes from a bad seal of your steering box pitman arm shaft. If it's the case, you can verify it, looking from under the vehicule, the bottom of your gear box will be covered of dirty oil.
However, reddish color fluid leak could also come from the cooling circuit of your automatic transmission or from the pan of your transmission. In conclusion, a visual check by under the vehicule will help to diagnose the origin.
Hope it will help.
There a small diameter hoses that run the the nozzles for the front and rear windshield. More than likely, one is loose or cracked and is leaking. Do you have good spray on the windshield as you operate it? Is one weaker than the other? - If so, you definitely have a leak in a hose or nozzle.
Another common leak area is around the reservoir edge or near the pump. The pump commonly resides at the bottom of the reservoir.
Hope this helps!

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.
