Radiator issues

I just got my truck back from the shop and they had to install a new ebp. I also had them pressure test the radiator since last week I saw a small puddle of coolant under the radiator on the drivers side. They told me my radiator was fine.

I just noticed that there is another small puddle in the same spot again

Looks like it needs to go back to ford again. My question is will it be safe to go on a 200 mile round trip this weekend for my archery deer hunt or should I just take it to ford asap ? its leaking pretty slow in the corner were the hard plastic and aluminum meet.

I had them pressure test the radiator but could they detect a leak that small with a pressure test ?

thats a tough one. that leak may never get any worse but on the other hand with these new plastic radiators it could split. Good luck
