Transmission Fluid on 2001 Mercury Sable

Twice I've had transmission fluid under the front of my car but the dipstick reads full. What could be the problem?

A small loss of fluid can leave what looks like a large puddle. If there is "red" fluid at the front of the car look for leaks form the automatic transmission cooler lines where they go into the radiator. Power steering fluid is also red in color could it be power steering fluid leaking from the resivour power steering hoses or power steering pump?
