Sounds like condensate from the air condition coil, not from a heater coil.
If the drain for that is stopped up, can "overflow" into passenger side of car, very common problem.
If freon is low, causing the coil to freeze over, then thaw when you are parked, very likely.
And that will be clear liquid, not color of anti-freeze.

the ac drain is more than likley stopped up, they tend to get clogged with debri not allowing the condensation from the evap. core to drain properly, thus allowing it to leak into the floorboard.

The problem is with the evaporator drain. There is a, (usually soft flexable), tube that drains condensation from the evaporator to the outside. It is located in the passenger compartment, under the dash. The hose has, (A)-became disconnected from the evaporator. (B)- Has gotten a kink in it. (C)-Became clogged, causing the evaporator to overflow into your passenger floorboard. Your vehicle probably has some covers over these components, you will likely have to remove. Locate the hose, it typically drains just behind and inside your right front wheel. It may be concealed behind a kick panel, or may go thru the floor or firewall. You must find it and follow it to the evaporator and make sure it is not clogged or kinked and is properly connected to the evaporator.

1st make sure it's the heater core. Usually it's the passenger side that is wet. To confirm it's the heater core, 1. do you smell antifreeze? It has a sweet smell, and should be easy to notice it if leaking. 2. Do have a problem with the windows fogging up, and turning on the defroster doesn't help or makes it worse? If the core is leaking, the moisture from the leak will fog up the windows, and the defrost mode struggles to clear the glass, as moisture is blown up the vents onto the glass. If 1 and 2 don't exist, the water on the drivers side is most likely a leak from rain along the door gasket, or windshield, or firewall.

Check to see if the liquid is the same as whats in the radiator, if yes then yes it is the heater core. You would have to pull the dash out to replace the core and could proove to be a bad experience because of the air bags and not knowing the steps to pulling the dash. The job calls for about 5 hours not including evacuation and recharging the a/c. so depending on the shops hourly rate im guessing it would cost somewhere around 600 to 700 hundred dollars.
