It is going somewhere. Look over it some more at all hose's & connections, and radiator and check heater core lines and under dash for dampness and water pump may have a tiny leak and check thermostat housing for leaks or dampness near by. Put a large card board box under the car engine area over night and check to see if its wet anywhere if not let it run for a little while with the card board under it to see if any leaks show up. Next See you smell a sweat smell around exhaust tail pipe and/or steam white smoke. Check oil fill tube & bottom of oil cap for a milky substance, and see if the oil itself looks milky. If you do smell and/or see white smoke from tail pipe or any of those listed after it it may be a intake or head gasket issue which you may have caught very early and will not damage the engine if repaired now.
