It could be hose, water pump or thermostat. You should stop by a shop to address the leak. Otherwise you will fry the head gasket which will cost you as expensive as new motor...

Pop the engine cover off, you'll be better able to see what is leaking. If a hose leaked it could have sprayed coolant and pooled on top of the motor. Someone will just have to investigate that's all. You don't mention any overheating issues, so hopefully all you have is a leaky cooling system.
