coolant smell in cab

I have 2010 6.4.. every now and then, I get that coolant smell in the cab or just outside like an engine does when it overheats, Yet my coolant level is fine. The truck only has 10K miles on it.. Anyone know? The truck is stock until Wednesday(bahahah)... I went with the Edge Evo CTS Race and DPF delete.

When you smell the coolant, turn on the defroster. If the window instantly fogs up, your heater core is bad.
