Do I need a cabin filter?

Hello,
I'm new to this forum but I have a problem and need your help. I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I smell an odor when I turn on my AC. I can't really describe the smell - maybe coolant or gas? I had my neighbor stick his head in and he smells something, too, but to him it didn't smell like coolant or gas (he described it as a "glue" smell). Anyway, I'm convinced it's making me sick so I wear a mask when I'm driving. Please HELP! Someone else said it could be the heater core. What are your thoughts? Thank you!!
