leaking coolant!! help

so i went in today to get my oil changed and the guy came up to me and said my coolant was low and he topped it off, he also said it appeared to be slowly leaking. i didnt really take much notice because he said it wasnt to bad, but when i got back home i noticed after a few ours there was a small puddle of coolant under my truck, it wasnt vey big but it still is a leak. i further investigated to find the coolant line was soaked but could not find out where from, is there anything i should be seriously worried about like a expensive repair bill or could it just be a leaky seal?? please help me out

mine sarted just leaking outta the blue a few months back @ 58,000 miles, smelled it b4 even noticing it leaking. Pretty easy inexpensive fix. New pump was 98.00 Grab your fan blade and see if you have any wiggle in the water pump bearing.
