No it's not normal. The radiator shouldn't drip under any circumstances. How much coolant are you adding? How is the oil level? The smoking is most likely engine oil. Any CEL's on the dashboard?

My fluids are full all of them and i check on them daily, as for the CEL it is on but i was told that was due to a vriken vacuum line connected to the egr valuve

Well if the fluid level of everything is ok then just keep your eye on them. The smoke is most likely engine oil. The fluid under the radiator is most likely coolant. As for the vacuum line. Get it replaced when you can. One last thing. The CEL can tell you about more than just one problem. Have it read.
