brake trouble after track day

So when I was checking my tire pressures after my first track run, I was down near the tire when I heard a hissing sound - it sounded like the brake fluid was boiling out of my caliper. The boiling stopped soon after, my brake fluid level wasn't going down, and the brakes seemed to be fine for the rest of the track day, nor did the sound come back. Later I took the wheel off and noticed what looked like brake fluid stains (very hard to get out) and I've now noticed, even though I've bled the brakes, the brake under suspicion doesn't seem to produce nearly as much brake dust as the other side.... for starters I'm going to clean the pad and caliper with proper cleaner - any other suggestions? Anyone had their brakes boil? I've heard of it but don't actually know what it entails... thanks
