Hi, I fill my coolant tank and it’s pretty much empty a mile down the road but doesn’t empty when the engine is off, I know you guys probably can’t tell me my exact problem but what are the possibilities? I’ve seen the drips and the it’s not contaminated, it seems to drip from a hose that’s in front of the radiator but also from the engine but I only see this after the car has had a short drive, as you can probably tell I’m not all that clued up so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Leaks & Noises
Best get a garage to pressure test the coolant system.
As name suggests this pumps up the coolant system and makes all the little leaks go of like a high pressure hose.
Easy to spot where it's leaking.
One possible cause of engine water leak could be the water pump .
