Did you remove some brake fluid out of the reservoir before compressing the caliper piston? and leave the lid off? It pushes fluid back to the reservoir and it can overflow it.
Or worse it could have blown a seal when you were compressing the pistons if the lid was on and overflowed.

mine seems to seep aswell, down the black dougnut thing :P

bugger all tho, after months of driving level doesnt drop more than a few mm.

although, when ever i take my cap off the rubber thing inside always seems to have been sucked into the fluid on 1 end. what causes that?

the vaccum causes it. no air can get in, but your losing fluid so it's sucked down.
