Coolant leak?

Okay so right now I'm in Vegas drove my car here from so cal no sign of overheating but once I got off the freeway and parked I noticed a puddle of water and a line of water that led to my car. I opened the coolant cap and its full? Wtf? And it does smell like coolant but no sign of overheating it did make a funky noise tho

Did you touch the fluid? And smell it from your finger? You would know just from that if it was ac run off or coolant. How much leaked?

Ac tends to get wet jaja

If it wasn't over heating I wouldn't be to worried. Get the liquid on your finger. You should be able to tell between water and coolant

The coolant would be sweet smelling. A thicker viscosity. Green! Water is plain old agua.
