Fluid on top of sparkplugs?

I was taking the ignition coils out of my 1996 328is to replace them and the spark plugs and there was an almost clear liquid that came out. It isnt oil and ive read that oil could leak through if you have a bad valve cover gasket. Any one have any idea as to what or why this fluid is here?

Thanks, Patrick

It really shouldn't unless there is a leak.
