Its fine. Don't worry about it and keep riding. Just every month or so empty the tube, depending out how much collects there.

That is the water pump inspection hose (aka the water pump mechanical seal bypass).
It's dripping coolant onto the ground because the mechanical seal in the water pump is shot, and coolant is leaking past the seal.

You have two choices: 1) Repair the existing water pump by replacing the mechanical seal, or 2) replace the entire water pump.

If you don't, the seal will eventually completely fail, and all your coolant will drain out.

Those are vent tubes that are capped with the rest of the overflow/vent tubes. They usually have residual oil in them.
