Probably one of the hoses that goes into the firewall to the heater core is leaking, and or the core itself. Have it checked out.

I had that problem with my Grand Prix. It ended up being the heater hose bypass elbows. They are a couple of shitty plastic fittings that become very brittle and crack. I replaced them with Aluminum ones so that wouldn't happen again. Make sure you get them replaced before they catastrophically fail like they did for me. You have to remove the alternator to access them. Part # 47065HP. If you buy it on rockauto.com, you can use my 5% discount code: 1861354412629810.
