What's under the car?  A lot of water?

Two choices.

a) the hose at the washer has popped out, you need to pull the bumper
forward and reattach

b) your fluid is not for winter use, and froze in the bottle,
cracking it.  If so, you can repair the bottle with a soldering iron
and some scraps from the bottle that the washer fluid came in.

BTDT on both counts.
