Is it leaking from the cut in the line? Otherwise check your passenger side floor for antifreeze

ok it the hose that comes from the water pump, there are to small hoses that come from the water pump,and then you have the radiator hose, im not talking about the radiator hose,im talking about the to smaller hoses, that go in the fire wall, on the passenger side,now its the hose that is closer to the passenger side that has the leak so im going to fix it

Drain it, there is a cover that makes it simple to get out, I think 4 or 5 screws and it comes out.
