If you are using air conditioning it could be the condensation around the
compressor. If so, that is normal.

If the radiator is leaking, should be red color.
Touch the fluid on the ground with your finger. If it is clear, should
be plain water.
Been trying to explain this to my 11 yr. old - water condenses from
the warm air when touching a cold surface, like the outside of an iced
drink, or the air contiioning condenser in your car.
If it does _not_ drip on the ground, then your problem is that the
carpeting in the car gets wet, and you need to clear the condensate
drain line.

It is completely normal. The AC has a thing called the 'evaporator' which is
situated in the heater/blower-fan box. Water or condensation forms on this
as humidity is pulled down in the car's cabin. This water is then drained
underneath the car via a small hose.

Park your car upside down to prevent water loss from the radiator.
