Parked up for 7 days in frequent rain, soaked water up but 2 hours later it was pooling again (no rain), water dirty but not same colour as coolant which level was about the same as usual. Any ideas please.

Could check windscreen by applying fairy liquid spray solution to outside and blowing with compressed air from the inside or applying heater blower and see if it bubbles up

Cant help you on locations on your car , never had to do it on one . Usual places are in corners and water drains out under wheel arch covers on some . Often the bottom where it drains out becomes plugged and can be cleared with a wire or rod . On some makes it entails removing plastic covering / grille at wipers to get access and can be a central drain
