Is the coolant bottle actually leaking or do you have a more severe problem? I would start by looking on the ground underneath your vehicle underneath the engine. If its coming from the front look at your radiator first, then your hoses upper and lower then your water pump and finally your heater hoses. If you cant see a leak start the car and let it warm up so your system has pressure to it. Then take a look and please dont stick your hand anywhere around the engine while it is running. Last place to look is feel the rug on the passenger side of the car to see if the rug is wet that would lead to a faulty heater core. If your handy with tools call around to your local auto parts store or tool rental places to see if they have a pressure tester. You can then pressurise your system with this tool and it should help you to find the leak.
I hope this helps you out, and if so please leave me a rating.
