Mechanic puts in the wrong fluid...........ARGH!!!!!!!

I changed my steering box but a local mechanic put in red fluid into the steering reservoir. Arrgh.

I think it's trans fluid. Isn't the steering fluid supposed to be clear? Is this really bad? Will it bring on leaks? (I say this because there is a leak somewhere in my reservoir.
