So i just notice my jeep wrangler 2020 has a leak somewhere around the transmission but can't find its origin or if even the transmission at all cause the liquid turns hard like dirt and gets pink colored and only leaks when running and then I stop

Looks like radiator fluid to me. Check the cap on reservoir. Search for radiator leaks. Has been a common problem.

So the liquid it's very slippery is not heavy like engine oil and has a sweet smell and the actual coolant it's pink but in the reservoir looks like water literaly it's clear but I will look

That appears to be coolant. I had a leak on one of the coolant hoses back in the day and looked exactly like what you have going on there.

So I looked everywhere couldn't find it but the reservoir was a little less than Min. And I had it refilled not long ago so it's weird that it's that low it's probably a broken hose somewhere

You should have warranty left on that, take it in and have them look at it

Ensure the cap is tight on the reservoir, these tanks are pressurized ( not like the old days ) if the cap is not tightened to the point of not turning it can leak past the seal, don’t ask me how I know this :LOL:
