I have a 10 month old Leopard Gecko, hes getting the right amount of food, getting vitamins and heating and the cool side is perfect. The other day he had a poo and it was just the white bit and a bit of fluid. should i be worried?

The white bit is the gecko's urates, which is how reptiles get rid of fluids (a bit like how birds do too). So no need to worry at all :)

I remember being just as alarmed as you when I got my first reptile!

My skink sometimes excretes only the urate at one time. She usually poops again later in the day if that's the case. I wouldn't worry about it.
