Clear liquid dripping from car - ID help

Hi. I just noticed today that the used 2016 CRV that I purchased last week is dripping a clear liquid. Looks like water. I got a great pic of it just now. Any knowledgeable auto buffs can chime in on what it could be?

Your ac comes on if you have defrost on to drain the river of moisture on your windshield

Yes I realized that I had the defrost (with leg vent) button on. I didn’t realize the AC auto kicks in. Thanks everyone for your quick replies!

If you have automatic climate control, hit the ac button with the vents in defrost setting to turn it off.
Screen should say "ac off". It will save you a bit of gas and give you more power off the line.
Just don't forget to turn it back on when you need quick defrosting of the windshield.

the compressor must have been activated with the defrost function
