the brown-ish color fluid in drain tube?

Hey all, new owner here. Wanting to know if it's normal to see the clearish/brownish colored fluid in the sealed clear breathing tube underneath the bike (the one with the cap on it under the kickstand)? Does that mean i have oil LEAKING somewhere or is it normal to see about an inch of it in that tube after starting/riding the bike? ... to be emptied later?

Shanfara- not under the bike on the floor. I mean under the bike in the CLEAR TUBE.

It's your crankcase breather drain tube. If some oil shows in it, remove the cap and drain the oil into a suitable container and replace the cap.

I'm sure it's in the manual.
