bad heater core

So when ever I first turn on my heater I smell coolant. I believe it is very likely a heater core problem, but I am wondering if anyone else has had any heater core problems with one of these trucks?
Its a 2010 f250 fx4 6.4 BTW.

turns out it was the lower radiator hose. It had a very small leak under high pressure.
