You need to remove the washer fluid. You can siphon it out, or remove the power steering reservoir and dump it out. If you haven't had the car running , you may be able to absorb it out with a rag since it is probably floating on top of the power steering fluid. The problem with washer fluid is that it is not compressible and will cause poor steering reaction when it enters the steering pump. It may even cause a loss of steering.
Loss of speed.
The check power light on a vehicle is a warning indicator. A common cause of this is a improperly charged battery.

It is not uncommon for there to be some incidental loss of power steering fluid. I have added minor amounts of power steering fluid to my 2001 three times over the years. No more than a couple ounces at a time though. If there's more loss than that, start examining the power steering hoses and connections for signs of leakage.
