The leak is from your brake master cylinder cap, it has a rubber gasket under it. If the gasket is dry rotted it will leak like yours appears to be. . Its a cheap fix! Welcome to the cj family!

X2......... Yes this is the starter solenoid. Tighten up connections and see if Jeep starts. If not you can take 2 rubber handled screw drivers and place one on each screw/lead on each side of solenoid and touch the metal parts of screwdriver together. If It arcs and Jeep tries to start the solenoid is probably bad. If you change solenoid make sure you take note which lead goes where according to orientation of solenoid as hooking up wrong will cook your new solenoid and you will be headed back to the auto store.

I got mine from rock auto. You might be able to find it in the help section at any major auto store. Just remove your master cylinder cap, flip it over and remove the black rubber gasket. There are two tabs on it, you will see once you flip the cap over. Take it with you to match it up. If not tomorrow night ill look at mine and get you the part number

Also take a look at the edge around the fluid chambers and make sure they are smooth.

Make sure master cylinder is not leaking through firewall as well, could mean it needs to be replaced.

Fuel pump or dirty carburetor. Also to warm it up you can engage the choke by pressing the accelerator One time to the floor. After warm up, quickly press the accelerator again.
