Mystery Tube

Have a new klr with 1400mi. There's a clear tube hanging beneath near right peg. Looks like a vent but has a plug in it and about an inch of fluid against the plug. What is this? Should I drain it, lay awake all night worrying or disregard?

It's a drain for the air cleaner housing for oil. If you have your owners manual look on page 103 (for a 2012 model anyway).
