Clutch and water

So it was raining the other day and I was driving and I press the clutch down and a little water drips on my foot, any one have anything to say about this?

Haha I was actually wearing flip flops when I first notice and it happened again when I was wearing steel toes and it leaked right onto the tongue and went down my leg

But is this a problem?

i'm sure it's a minor leak, perhaps windshield adhesive. try running a hose on various parts of your car then press the clutch

+1, sounds like a windshield leak. I would just take a look am make sure it is not something more serious. Does it only happen when it rains?

Yes it happens everytime it rains, I took it to a shop and they're looking at it right now.
If it is a windshield leak, does the water go to behind the water travel behind the dash or what?

Have them inspect/unclog the drains on the passenger side around/in the ECU compartment while they're at it. You don't want a dead ECU after a car wash or heavy downpour. Common fault on e36.
