Green fluid leaking?

My 2007 Patriot 4x4 Manual Transmission is dripping something green from under the general area of the engine compartment. I tried to peak under it and could not see it obviously dripping from anywhere, but I'll have to jack it up soon and really try to pinpoint what is leaking.

I was wondering if anybody had an experience with what the possible culprits may be...

1) coolant is pink on this, so I dont think its related to that
2) brake fluid is usually greyish in color
3) maybe its related to the FDI differential or the manual trans lube?

It's coolant.

I have a 2009 Patriot Sport / manual transmission and I noticed a half dollar sized spot on my garage floor every so often when I parked. It would occur directly under the engine compartment. My mechanic took a look at the cause and found out that the gasket on the thermostat was leaking and dripping down the engine block. I had the gasket replaced and fixed the problem.
