Default Coolant leaking from everywhere?

First, I am sorry if I posted in the wrong area, not quite sure how forums work and all.

But, my question is this.
I woke up to seeing puddles beneath my parked car and when I went to feel them and smell them out. I found out it was coolant fluid on the ground. after popping the hood, I found what looked like Dried green coolant all over the bay and above the radiator? also it is pooled up in the pan below the bay. What would cause this, and could it really spill over and out the top of the radiator?

bottom pan, with coolant all over, and dried coolant splashes.

You can see where it possible leaked from the top of the radiator gunkyness in the top seams.

I would guess its from a crack in stock radiator, very common, time to upgrade.

Check for cracks in black plastic.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll look into more and find out exactly where it's coming from. Thanks again.

Running it for a couple min to find where its leaking isnt a bad idea.

Mine recently leaked between the plastic and aluminum seam. Replaced it with a Mishimoto.
