You need to take the two hoses off of the heater core. Remove one of the lines and hook the end of the other line that used to attach to the heater core to the fitting on the engine that the hose that was removed used to be attached to.
That hose goes to the heater core,their are 2 hoses,one going to it and the other leaving it,could be just the clamp is loose,tighten it and wipe up the coolant and check again after awhile,will need to add coolant to your reservoir.Here's a link to your heater core's hoses,it's number 9 on the picture.

there is a small metal radiator, called a heater core, which sits inside the car. air is blown over it to provide heat inside the car. it is connected to the cooling jacket of the engine by two rubber hoses, one to bring hot coolant in and the other to return warm coolant back. either you have a leak in the core or a heater hose, from your description i cannot tell which. if it is a hose it will be a very cheap part to replace and a short bit of labor. if it is the core it will be much more expensive. i would find someone who knows the difference to take a look at it, probably not a good idea to drive it in its current condition. if it is a bad core, a short pipe can be put in place between the hoses to take the place of the leaking core until you can get it fixed. abot 90% of all the jeeps i ever rode in had this as a permanent fix for a leaking core but it is very cold in the winter.
This is what I did to solve the exact same problem.I got a pump that you can hook to a drill that has garden hose connections on it.I made 2 hoses to pump into my heater core and hook to the pump. I bought some radiator cleaner at Auto Zone and put it in a 5 gallon pail with about 2 gallons of hot water.I pumped the cleaner from the pail into the OUTLET side of the heater core.(By going in the outlet side you are back flushing the core.) I put an old cloth over the top of the bucket and let the outcoming cleaner run onto this cloth acting as a filter for the dirt coming out of the heater core and let the pump run about 10 minutes. Believe me,A LOT!!!!!!!!!!! of dirt,rust etc. came out of my heater core. The heat now works excellent! Good luck.
Start by removing the panel under the dash on
the passenger side. You will need a regular phillips screwdriver and a
snubby 2-3" phillips later. Also get a 1/4" socket set. First thing, go
under the car and remove the heater hoses from the firewall and twist
out the drain spiggot. Then go back inside the car. The heater core
sits under the radio. Under the core is a tray used to catch the
leaking antifreeze and drain it out the firewall. You need to remove
this tray. It has 6-8 screws holding it. Once the screws are out it is
tricky removing it with the center console in, but it can be done-twist
and bend. Then remove the screws holding the core in place and pull out
the heater core. One note on the replacement-got mine from Oreilly's
for $20-the two lines coming out of the heater core swivel to line up
with the holes through the firewall. If you don't swivel them it will
never seem to fit. Then reverse the above order, fill up the fluid,
bleed the air off and away you go. Took me about 3 hours total in a
parking lot. Ruined a shirt, but got it done. You will also cuss being
upside down under the dash. It's a small place for a 240 lb. guy :)
This was for a 1993 Beretta. Expect some bloody knuckles and a few

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are
attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink
any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground.
This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant
into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is
contaminated or several years old.
For heater core removal on these vehicles, please refer to the procedure for vehicles with A/C. 1994-96 VEHICLES See Figures 1, 2 and 3
Properly disable the SIR system, as outlined earlier in this section.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Disconnect the drain tube from the heater case.
Detach the heater hoses from the heater core.
Carefully lower the vehicle.
Remove the right and left sound insulators.
Remove the steering column opening filler.
Remove the floor air outlet duct.
Remove the heater core cover.
Unfasten the heater core mounting clamps, then remove the heater core from the vehicle.
Fig. 1: The heater core is located in the passenger's side footwell, below the glove compartment

Fig. 3: Component list for the heater core and related system components (2 of 2) - 1994-96 vehicles
Position the heater core in the vehicle and secure with the mounting straps.
Install the heater core cover.
Install the floor air outlet duct.
Install the right and left sound insulators.
Install the steering column opening filler.
Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Connect the heater hoses to the heater core.
Attach the drain tube to the heater case.
Carefully lower the vehicle.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Enable the SIR system, as outlined earlier in this section.
Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and
check for coolant leaks. Check the coolant level, and add if necessary.
I would say that your heater core or one of the heater core hoses has started to leak. Check the hose clamps to make sure that they are tight. Fill the coolant system and run the car. Check to see where the leak is, you may need to put the car on ramps so that you can see the leak better.
