I believe that is the bleed screw for the hydraulic clutch. It may have a rubber cap over it, same as the bleed screws for the brake calipers. I just bled my clutch and all the brakes, so that's where mine was. Check the "how-to-articles" for clutch bleeding and see if you recognize it.

That's exactly what it is. Whatever you do, don't go pumping grease in there!! :)
