How do you check the power steering fluid?

I have a 2011 SS and I have a strange noise when turning the wheel. I also have some tan fluid on the ground. However I cant figure out on how to check the fluis level. Can anyone help me?

There is a dipstick under the power steering reservoir cap. Simply remove the cap and see where fluid level is at. Note there is a hot and cold level. Check for leaks around the power steering reservoir.
