Leaky drum brake cylinder?

I did some cleaning and servicing on the rear drum brakes on my Clio today. Everything went well, except when i pushed in one of the pistons on the left cylinder, a little brake fluid came out.

Is this a sign of a leaky cylinder?

Or did i simply push it too far in? If so, do i need to bleed the system?

The cap on the brake fluid container was firmly on and no valves or anything were open...
