Yes its nothing at all to worry about, overnight condensation builds inside the pipework or water gets in during washing. When you start the bike it forces this water out. Absolutely nothing to worry about.

As your bike cools down from a ride, condensation builds up in there. When you start the bike up, the water is forced out. It is usually not enough to do any damage.When washing your bike, stuff an old sock or wash cloth in the pipe to prevent water from going in.

It's just condensation, forget about it.
