Hi Perla and welcome to NGA!

I'm thinking it's guttation which is essentially the exuding of sap and is quite common on plants in the Pachira genus. If it bothers your or is creating a mess you can just wipe it off with a moist paper towel.

I've had a number of plants that do that. If it's not making a mess, it's not a problem.
