Probably difficult to see but it has one, it's behind the lower portion of the water pump pulley. If you have coolant dripping out from behind the water pump pulley, it is coming out the weep hole, the seal is shot and probably the bearing also. Time for water pump replacement, don't wait.

usually coolant leaks come from bad gaskets... or a bad water pump.. i would say drain the system and run water through the radiator (do NOT drive with water in the radiator, your engine will surely overheat!) and see if you can spot where the coolant is coming from... if it is coming from the engine block then you might have bad gaskets.. if not then it's the water pump.

You have had overheating problem with your car and quickly you filled the coolant tank with water and after you drive one mile your car overheated again and the the coolant dried up really quick?

If you can't see where its coming from, it may be a cracked head, or a bas headgasket. Also, when you add water to the coolant tank, it doesn't immediately go into the radiator. After the car sits a while, the radiator starts to cool, creating a vacuum. Water/coolant is then pulled into the radiator from the coolant tank.
