Hello, I'm Danny.
Since you are noticing coolant drops on the ground it does sound like there is some sort of leak.First thing I suggest is to to perform a cooling system pressure test.It's basically a pump that pressurizes the system with engine not running to determine where coolant is leaking from.If you don't have access to a pressure tester most auto parts stores have a tool loaner program (depending where you live) and will rent you one.Here is a tutorial showing what is involved:
Also, have you checked to see if engine oil and coolant are mixing together in either the radiator or engine oil crankcase? That would be a separate more costly repair.Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
