Does it have a sweet smell like coolant? Or does it smell more like a wet pair of socks? Probably no smell or wet socks smell and if so the drain for your under dash ac unit is stopped up. Look under your vehicle right about where your feet would be if sitting in the car. You should find an open ended hose about the size of your little finger. If nothing is dripping out of it or very little is while ac is running then it's stopped up. Sometimes a coat hanger ran up the hose will get it un stopped. Or some even blow up it with air compressor to free the blockage.

Oh use caution with hanger method. Just ease it up the hose till water starts coming out. Don't want to poke a hole in anything else.

Also check the weatherstripping on the driver door.

Try the air first. Less risk of damage.
