i am not sure what the problem is but it leaks quite a bit of water... up on the firewall right in between where the two ac lines go through there is what appears to be a drain coming out. this drain has a steady drip coming out of it. i didn't know if this could possibly be a heater core leaking and it is coming out of that drain. I can not get down to see 100% but i believe the water pump is fine and i think that this is where i am losing all of my coolant.

If it is clear water, it is normal condensation from the A/C. If it is actually coolant, the you have a bad heater core.

If the water is clear, it is probably condensate from the ac system. If the liquid smells and looks like coolant, more than likely the heater core is leaking.

the water is clear but the ac was never running and it is a lot of water i filled up two cups in about 20 minutes and the heater was going full blast not the AC... Would it still be condensation if the AC wasn't running

You do have a 50/50 mix of coolant in your engine right, and not straight water?
