Yes. there is a drain for the a/c near the heater core connections. Water should drip from it when the a/c is running. But if the heater core is leaking, antifreeze will drip or run from this drain.

Is there a bypass on the heater core


Hello bijtj.
There are no bypass hoses on the heater core. Flow of coolant out of the engine and into the core and back to the engine is flowing at all times. The heat inside your car is adjusted by means of a door inside the heater box.
If your intent is to bypass the core because it is leaking you would need to pull the hoses off at the firewall and install a joiner.

There is a coolant leak in my 97' oldsmobile achieva sl


If the coolant is leaking into the vehicle, I assume the passenger side, then more than likely it is the heater core. There are two possible fixes, the first, is to remove the dashboard, costly. Or, second bypass the heater core, the only problem with that is, you won't have any heat in the passenger compartment. So depending where you live that is a call of personal comfort. That should FixYa.
