SOURCE: coolant leak 1998 buick external
it sounds like the water pump may be leaking beacuse when runnung the seal is lubricated and may not be leaking at that time but when left over night the seal in the water pump contract and starts to leak. check for stains and leaks with a mirror before starting in the morning i think you will find that it is leaking. don't worry they are not bad to change. good luck

After the engine has reached normal operating temperature, feel both heater hoses going into the firewall. Are both hot? If both are hot, it's probably the door or doors in the heater case not operating from the selector knob on the dash. If only one hose is hot, the coolant is not circulating through the heater core. Look for a water valve in the hoses that is shut. If no valve, crack open the cold line to see if you can start circulation through the core. If neither hose is hot, pull off the inlet to the heater core (it may come from the cylinder head area) and run the engine and check stream flow. It won't spurt out like a garden hose, it should flow out in a smooth even stream, maybe just enough pressure to push a steady stream. If no flow comes out, coolant is low, or there is a circulation problem in the engine, like a kinked hose, a weak water pump...
Does the radiator cap hold pressure in the cooling system?
