    I spilled a small amount of water on my 13" macbook a week ago, it was fine at first but around 12 hours later it wouldn't boot up, I let it dry for a few hours and turned it on, it was fine, but then it turned pink, then went back to normal.

    It remained normal for around an hour and then turned green, it has remained like this since and only twice when restarted has remained normal for a few minutes before returning back to green.

    The Green is only a tint, I can still see everything on my screen.

    Will this problem go away after time or do I have to go to the Apple store?

    If I do have to get it fixed at an Apple Store does anyone know how long it will take to get fixed or how much it will cost?

    The graphics card is likely shot, or the video cable is corroded/shorted. It might go away over time, but don't use the computer for a week. This will lower the chances of any permanent damage. Take out the battery, and place the MacBook in a warm, dry place for 5-7 days. If it doesn't work after this, it will be an expensive repair at the Apple store.
