It could be your water pump there is a seep hole at the bottom of the water pump and they seep out antifreeze and they are hard to see where they are leaking you can put a pressure test on the system to find the leak faster

see if the fans come on when it gets hot , they may come on when you select A/C then you'll know they work , you have to clean things up the best you can and baby sit the engine to see where the coolant is leaking from .

you are leaking coolant your engine has been overheating and you kept driving it- that's not good- hopefully you didn't blow a head gasket or the whole engine- time to pay a mechanic for an inspection-
