Are you guys sure that that's STS-37? Because it could be this mini satellite that NASA deployed on STS-87.
But it's definately not a drop of water.

If these were water droplets then they would have to be very close to the lens of the camera. If these objects are very close to the lens of the camera and are in focus then any background imagery must be out of focus unless your using an extremely wide angle lens. The lens used to make these photographs (videos) was obviously not extremely wide angle, otherwise you would be able to see the interior of the space ship which you can't.
In fact the lens used appears to be telephoto which impacts the depth of field (range of focus) . These types of lenses only focus at a narrow range of distance.
That being said, the objects must be outside the space ship. If they were inside the space ship they would look like a big smudge on the camera lens, even though they were a perfectly formed sphere. There is no way for a telephoto lens to focus both close and distant at the same time.
