If it really is leaking from radiator you need a new one, or take it to a radiator shop that can make it like new, they give it an acid bath and flush, but these shops are becoming hard to find. Not like the old days when things got fixed, all the shops and dealers just use new. But before you do, do a pressure test cold, a device that pumps air in through cap and then you can see where it leaks..maybe thermostat housing, hose, heater hose , water pump

Is it possible that problem is arising because the coolant needs bleeding
