Popped the hood on my 17 hatchback, noticed some dried fluid residue, has very slight blue or green color, Im thinking its coolant? What are these hoses for? I gently wiggled the hoses and checked to see if the clamps are tight, and they are.....whats going on?

The car has roughly 2500 miles. I noticed my coolant levels have been low lately in the reservoir/overflow tank....keeping a close eye on it. Dont know if this is related to other thread regarding white grey smoke coming out of exhaust when accelerating hard, found on this thread:

on the CivicX site he also said he had white smoke coming out of his exhaust. Think he should take it in
