possible small coolant leak

noticed that there is a small amount of coolant sitting on top of the rad and a few runs down the rad also looks like abit of coolant spray under the air intake pipe. i did notice that the whoever last serviced it overfilled the coolant expansion tank by quite abit ive now took alot out and now its just under the full mark when cold anyone know what it could be and whether it being overfilled had something to do with it merry xmas..

Overfilling it could have caused it. I would just keep an eye on the level for a few days and carry some spare coolant incase. Wouldn't top it up with water in the current cold climate as it may freeze again soon.
