Drum brake cylinder?
I took apart my driver side rear drum brake to add a little height temp grease between the shoe & backing plate to stop a squeak that it was making when I would let my foot off the brake pedal. Well I solved that problem but in the middle of reassembling the brakes the brake cylinder started leaking a little bit.
Is this cylinder broken or is this normal? The brake pedal also feels softer like air may of gotten in, I am planning on bleeding them as soon as the sun comes up here.
Any useful help is appreciated,

Get someone else to press on the brakes while you look at the wheel cylinder. If a lot comes out, it means you punctured it somehow, and you need a new one.

Not normal unless the pistons where pushed out too far during your fiddling. It may need replacement.

If its not leaking when u press the pedal and the gaskets are ok its probably just dust
