Looks like bearing grease. Maybe you got a leaking seal. They are real easy to replace. I would repack the bearing with grease.

don't drive on it. no oil=extra heat in the trans. no grease in the bearing = extra friction, both equal bad things happening. No wheel cylinder = open brake system = no brakes.

Park it and find the problem ASAP.

I agree. Don't drive it. Safety first. You only get one life. That's the rules. Hopefully, it's not your daily driver.

Is your car swing axle or IRS?

rear axle seal gone. if you're broke and the brake shoes are good, you can spray them with a couple of cans of brake cleaner, sand the glaze off with whatever sandpaper you have handy and reuse 'em. But you gotta buy a new seal and kit. Be sure and follow the book on torqueing that drum and the cotter key...don't forget that. I got a story about that happening.....
