Well i just did an oil change yesterday and then today i parked the car in the garage to fix the belly pan cover to zip tie it because i lost some pins and i see a little puddle of pink liquid and blue liquid any advice? i tried looking around the engine for leaks but don't see anything.

pink would be coolant, or possibly trans if youre auto, brake can look blueish

Pink is definitely coolant and blue is most likely gonna be your brake fluid. I know the brake fluid in my dad's Porsche is blue.

well the pink fluid stopped leaking and the blue fluid is still dripping i think its cuz i tried to fill the windshield wiper fluid and i put a whole jug of it in and i guess theres a hole somewhere cuz when i try to use it nothing comes out

Keep watching out for the drops of pink. Sometimes some plastic parts get warped from the heat, and seals back down when it cools off (thus, stopping the leak).

blue could be washer fluid. my brake fluid is green.

does washer fluid ruin anything in the engine? because i think i smell like a burnt smell coming from the engine but i think its cuz the windshield wiper fluid is leaking

There isn't anything really hot near the washer reservoir. As long as it isn't getting into your engine you should be fine.
