Top or bottom..or is it leaking so bad it's hard to tell? How much coolant and how often do you add? and do you add to radiator or plastic reservoir? I know, so many questions, just trying to narrow this down

This is one that is very difficult without being at the car. Yeah, I guess I am making excuses for my ignorance...but I responded because I was thinking I could give a generic answer. What needs to happen is clean everything as well as possible, do NOT use a car-wash wand, then have another look. Try to find source of leak, they are probably unrelated. Sorry 'bout that, wish I could do better.
