Sounds like a Freon Leak (freon has compressor oil mixed with it) or a coolant lead in the heater core. If it's a freon leak than it won't be long before the compressor fails to come on due to the freon pressure switch sensing low freon

Tom is right. Freon leaks come quick, and you would have likely seem the cloud. My bet....is a seep in the heater core, and as it warms and turns to steam it vaporizes on the windshield. Betting you soon find the right front carpet wet,,,or a drip behind the right front tire on the ground.
