Front brake HELP!

When I was changing my front brakes today (2005 Prerunner) I noticed some brake fluid leaking from the caliper piston. Its just a little. Is this really bad? What do you guys think?

x2. Fix it. Either replace the caliper or rebuild your current one.

honestly man...may be easier to get new calipers/remanned calipers from autozone or somewhere. they arent hard to replace....just gotta remove "snap rings" and pull the parts out.
