If it continues loosing coolant eventually it will start running hot. Without knowing the Make/Model/Year of the vehicle, I'll take a wild guess and say the leak is at the coolant recovery tank or the hose going from the radiator [just below the radiator cap] over to the coolant recovery tank. Untill you find the problem *check* your coolant--running an engine hot can be VERY expensive! Also, check the coolant ****ONLY*** when the engine is COLD [like it hasn't been driven all night]. NEVER check coolant when the engine is hot! Good luck with it and be carefull. Remember, better SAFE than sorry...

I think what you are seeing is your muffler leaking condensation from a weep hole. This normal and will stop after your vehicle has reached full operating temperature.
