Possibly the water pump if the fluid is Anti-Freeze(Green orPink) Could be just a bad hose when it get pressurized after warming up , maybe Peeeing Out Lol....

Sorry for that.... I was thinking about the Anti-Freeze part only. It can be a few things. If it is an automatic transmission, it could be a transmission coolant line that runs through the bottom of the radiator & the fluid is being blown around by the fan. The fluid could be Pink or a Brownish color if it has not been serviced for awhile & could easily be mistaken for motor oil.

Best to have your local mechanic look it over and repair. It isn't a good thing leaking that much fluid as your car might leave you stranded and worse yet, damage something that will cost you more than repairing the leak.
