HELP! Faint Smoke from Beneath Engine

About 3 weeks ago I noticed a funky burnt smell come from under the hood of my 2003 325i after I turned the car off. I noticed the smell a few more times but thought it started to go away so I kind of forgot about it. Just a couple of days ago I noticed the smell again, opened the hood, and saw a very faint smoke coming from under the left side of the engine (for about 2 minutes). I checked it again today and noticed the same problem. Tomorrow, I have to drive about 3 hours to get to school so I'm wondering if anyone has any clue what the problem could be. It smells to me like some kind of fluid is burning after the engine is shut off. (There are no fluid leaks of any kind in my driveway).

The car has been running perfectly fine. Engine temp. is right where it should be, and I have no lights on on the dash. Is the car safe to drive? Any ideas what the problem could be would be great.

This is where the faint smoke is coming from under the hood -->
