If it simply got wet and you haven't turned it on since it got wet, just let it dry out before turning it on and it should be fine.

 

I think that it would only possibly get damaged if it was powered on while wet, and water created a short between components that normally aren't supposed to connect together, and that caused some damage.

 

If it was powered on when it got wet, and it malfunctioned, then there might be damage to it.

The picture is very blurry, and I can't make out what the white stuff is. Did it change colour around those square parts?

You should clean it off at first, of course be sure it is fully powered off and then just clean it with a toothbrush (that you don't intend on using in your mouth anymore) with some water or alcohol on it. Of course make sure to dry everything and not let huge amounts of water sit on it.

Well, that doesn't look good. Did that white stuff leak out of the square components? Did they warp in shape or bloat at all?

 

Those squares sort of look like they're just solder. In which case, I'd wonder where the white stuff is coming from. Is it just flux residue that reacted with water?
