Help with a Olympus 35 SP : Rear Element

So, I acquired an Olympus 35 SP for cheapish and noticed a hair behind the back element. I disassembled the lens assembly and got rid of the hair. I accidentally unscrewed the middle of the lens assembly -- so the two loose glass elements came apart from the rear lens element assembly. While I was in there, I decided to carefully clean the lens elements. Like a dummy without thinking, i sprayed lens cleaner directly on the glass. There is a strange kind of flat watery substance in between the rear element glass that I cannot get to. Not sure if it was the lens cleaner, or it was there all along. Anyone know what to do?

I think the last two elements are glued together so I don't think you can do anything about it. This also makes me think it probably isn't your cleaner, but the glue coming away or possibly air bubbles getting in between the elements.

How is the camera otherwise? Cheers.
