Probably not a head gasket if you see the fluid, most probably a cracked or loose hose or the water pump.


head gasket would produce white smoke from your tailpipe. Cracked block or freeze plug would pour out when you started the car. A constant drip is a water pump, hose or fitting. You have to search for them... its a pain as the fluid can travel a great distance across the engine before deciding to drip down.
