Question about 2007 Chevrolet Equinox LS New Cars
Water pumps have a drain hole on the bottom next to the block and it is there to allow water that has passed a faulty seal to leak out before it damages the bearing.. Pull the water pump and if that is the case replace it with a new item as it is more expensive to repair than to replace.

SOURCE: 1998 monte carlo coolant
I just did a lower intake reseal on my 98 monte's 3100, it's not tough to do, the biggest part is paying attention to what pushrod came from what position and ensuring they go back to where they came from, not only for wear patterns, but for different lengths on the intake and exhaust push-rods.
I work for a GM dealer in northwest montana, and I can say it's not cheap labor-wise, generally around 6 hours of labor and around 300 in parts...it can add up quick, but when those intakes start leaking oil and coolant, things can go sour quickly...espeically if coolant starts leaking into the engine, not good for bearings.
Dex cool is not the problem with these gaskets leaking, it's common on 3100's, 3400's, 3300's, etc, any motor from that series that has that style of lower intake is prone to the issue, the rubber/plastic/composite will eventually warp, break down, crack, seperate from hot and cold cycles, I've seen it all too many times. Dex cool is the best coolant out there, there's a reason that prestone, peak, zerex can't compete, in fact a few of those blends are blends that are less efficient that Dex that GM decided not to patent. But the Dex patent is due to run out soon to the point everyone can start using dex. One issue with dex is the "gum-up" problem when the mixture is not ideal and the level is left low, but flushing and setting proper mixture (50/50) and level will alleviate this problem.

The drainage tube for the evaporator case is plugged causing the the condensation to drain inside instead of outside the car. The car will probably need to be lifted to find the drainage tube. Use a pick to gently remove the debris blocking the tube. You must be very careful as not to puncture the evaporator core.
