If you were loosing it through the head it's not likely to produce the smell you are getting. I had an issue with a weak spring clamp on the hose coming off the thermostat housing. The coolant was dripping onto the trans housing and collecting in a little recessed area then evaporating off without hitting the ground. The smell was present and strong. The easiest way to identify small leaks is to add dye to the coolant and drive a few days before checking the engine compartment with a UV flashlight. Your local auto parts store should sell both.
