Default help with coolant smell

I have a 04 wrx, 16G. I have had a small coolant smell issue under boost all summer, and recently it has gotten much more pronounced. I have had to add a small amount of coolant every 2 weeks or so to keep it topped off. I have recently seen a few drops of oil in the coolant overflow, and a few drops floating on top of the reservoir, but no noticeable coolant in the oil itself. No issues with performance, but the turbo does seem to be getting excessively hot. Forced Performance(turbo manufacturer) does not seem to be too good at returning phone calls or e-mails. I assume it may be an engine head issue, but would I not be seeing more problems? Could this be a problem with the turbo inself, like in gaskets or fittings? Should I go ahead and look into engine/tranny swaps? Or whole car swaps? Thanks.
