If you smell antifreeze, you have a small leak. Heater core or the valve is leaking. The small amount will fall into the drip pan and if it is enough, it will exit on the ground like the condensation from air conditioner.

You almost certainly have a head gasket leak. Address this immediately or risk engine failure. The fact that you are getting a must of antifreeze on your windows indicates this.
