RE: orchid help

I have recently recieved an Phalaenopsis Orchid as a gift. It is potted and I had it in my home. I have now put it in my office at work so that it can get better filtered sunlight from my window that it was not able to get form my home.

I noticed now that the stem is being droopy,blooms are somewhat wilty, and it has a clear liquid dripping from the tip of the stem. I am worried it is on its way to dieing and I want some tips on caring for it. It is my first orchid so I need help!!
