For future reference, how can you check if the levels are low?
I also had to recently top off my PS fluid. It was quite low and I was hearing some noise from the pump. Had it checked for leaks and all is well....not sure where it goes. You can easily check the level by removing the cap. It has a little dipstick attached to it with two lines. You're good to go if you're somewhere between the two lines. I topped off until I reached the top line and I've heard no more whine from the pump.
