It's most likely air conditioner condensate if it's water and doesn't smell like antifreeze

Look above the liquid...that's your first clue.

First thing I do is dip my finger in it, sniff and taste. If it's oil, you will know. If it has antifreeze in it, you will smell it and the water will be slippery. If it's condensate from the AC, it will be plain water.

If it's antifreeze, then you have a coolant leak. What I would do first is check coolant level after it has cooled down and make sure it's up to the correct level. That buys you time. Second step would be to start looking for the leak, which may sometimes be found because the antifreeze may leave a color trace from the point of the leak. You can go to a shop and have them use a pump to pressurize the cooling system, which usually will make the leak easy to find. At that point you can make decisions about how to fix it.

Happens with most cars....at least here in the South during the really hot and humid days. Glad to hear that’s all it was

If the AC is on and you live in a humid area, they all do.
