The first thing you need to do is to get the engine inspection cover off and start looking for any potential leaks from above.

In your case, pink crystallised OAT coolant will be a big indicator.

Start checking all hose. Lips are tight and check all hoses are not showing any signs of perishing or splitting.

Furthermore, some leaks are more evident when the engine is cold rather than hot.

Be methodical and assume nothing.

Good luck.
