Depends on how severe the leak is. If it is a bad leak at the pump, then you more than likely need to replace the pump. If it is leaking severely at a hose, the hose needs replacing. If it is a very minor leak, you can try a PS stop leak, such as Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak. This may or may not stop the leak.

the power steering resevoir, MAKE SURE the vehicle requires power steering fluid, some use transmission fluid instead. If your unsure take it to a lube center and ask them to do it you. In the 2004 Chevy Impala with the 3.8L engine, the power steering pump is a sealed unit. It does not require fluid to be added. Also if you have to replace it, it is not an easy job. The power steering pump is above the transmittion and behind the center of the engine.

Assuming you are putting it in the power steering, why not?
With the engine cold, remove the cap on the power steering pump. Inside the cap is a dipstick with a marking for both the cold and hot fluid levels
The car should still be under warranty. Take it back to the dealer.
