With engine cold and engine off do a pressure test on cooling system. Auto zone will loan you what you need to do the test. When coolant starts coming out use a small inspection mirror to look in and around everything where coolant is coming from. Doing this with engine cold makes it easier and safer for you to find the leak without getting burnt.
