First start up after winter/ coolant puddle

Hey all. First bike, first after winter startup in nh. Changed the battery out, and started up. Noticed some leaking under the bike as it got warmer. Let it run for 30 mins. And my husband drove it a few miles. Let it run another 25 mins at idle in neutral. And have a orange puddle. I can't seem to find out if this is a leak, a condensation thing etc. Any help is greatly appreciated. * 2015 xg750

Coolant overflow tube. Mine burped once the second ride on the bike after parking. Hasn't happened since. Pull the left side panel and check coolant level in overflow tank. This isn't a big deal.

One note......those extended idles while just sitting...not so good.
