If the antifreeze is coming out of the seam between the head and engine block you either have a leaking head gasket or a leak somewhere else that is following the seam of the head. The best thing to do is to perform a pressure test. This requires putting a pressure tester on the cooling system and pressurizing it. By doing this you can see where the exit point is of the antifreeze. If the coolant is low it will overheat or if the head gasket is blown it may show that it is overheating.

The only way you will know for sure what is leaking is either by doing the procedure above or having a shop put dye into the coolant and using a black light to see where it is coming from for sure. From your explanation it sounds like it is coming from the head gasket or possibly a crack head or block.
