Probably the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump. If that it the water pump needs to be replaced. Do a pressure test on cooling system. This will cause it to leak without the engine running. I find using a small inspection mirror helps to look in tight areas. I do not advise to add any stop leak product to your cooling system. It does not fix anything just make everything get all stopped up. One fix turns to three or four different fixes after using fix in a can products.
