CLean it up. If it reappears in a relatively short time [month or two] then that post has lost its seal to the acid below and an ever so slight acid leak is occurring. You can live with it or replace it. There is no fix that I know of.

For the cleaning use some baking soda mixed in water to neutralize the acid. Just be carefull and use the minimum possible untill the foaming quits.

If you can use only one heavy lead to the battery post and terminate the other wires at a buss bar that would be best. However, often that seal can be damaged by clamp removal if the clamp is difficult and a puller is not used or on flag terminals if carefull wrenching is not done.
Usually I get away with not using a puller but if the clamp shows the least bit of fight then I use the puller.
