The windshield washer tank is closer to the headlights.
The brakefluid is nearest the windshield, the tank with the redish fluid at the firewall is the coolant.

Are you refering to the blue plastic container?
If so it's filled with a vacuum, don't worry about it.

its not the coolant overflow tank (coolant expansion tank) says my manual. Its directly above the drivers side headlight, i think the cap is green, but since my cap says nothing on it, it may be a replaced cap. Ill go out and check the color of the fluid in a sec. When i took the cap off earlier it has a a dip stick connected to the cap to show you how full it should be.

The one with the green cap? Directly behind the headlights? I believe that's the power steering fluid. In the pic above, there is an icon which looks like a steering wheel.
Yup...definitely Power Steering. I think the confusion we had trying to answer this was the geographic placement.....'below' as opposed to 'in front of'.
