Can a MC leak?

So I just rebuilt my MC for a solution to my squishy brakes and it has made it a little better. But the is a little fluid on the brake light switch after finishing everything and going on a short ride. So I don't know if it can leak there from the screw hole or if there is a leak somewhere else. the gasket for where the brake lever goes is good. Is there anywhere on the mc that could leak a little when in use?

I don't think it's anything to worry about!

If you're sure the gasket by the lever is good I don't see where else it would be leaking from

Clean the area thoroughly and then recheck the area for fluids.... Use a degreaser to clean.

Of course it's something to worry about, why wouldn't it be?
