if it's on the top of your radiator, you probably just have a leaky hose.

Tighten the clasps connecting the hoses to the radiator inlet and outlet with a screwdriver and if that doesn't get rid of it, you may have a messed up hose, a cracked rad, a broken pressure release valve or something else that you probably won't be able to fix yourself.

If it's coming from the seal between the head and the block, your head gasket is failing/failed and that can be lead to quite a disastrous event.
