I’ve just recently got this car handed down to me by my parents. It has been leaking a lot recently and we don’t know why. My dad said there once was a small leak on the hose connect to the top of the coolant reservoir he replaced it. That was to his knowledge the most recent and only leak we’ve had. I ran it today for about 10 min and there was a big puddle underneath. And another thing on the way home the coolant light came on. i was only about a minute away from home so i drove it home and i opened my hood and it was smoking on the left side kinda around the cylinder head. I’m new to cars so i apologize if my explanation isn’t the best. But I’m just wondering if anyone could help me pin down why it’s leaking

I found out it’s leaking from the thermostat housing
