    It definitely needs to be checked out as it has it's potential hazards. If it's from the engine compartment it may be oil dripping on to the hot exhaust system. Do a visible inspection in the engine compartment and place a sheet of cardboard under your engine at night and see if there are any drips, if so are the engine oil, power steering fluid, transmission fluid or antifreeze?
