If it is near the driver's footwell and you have been using the air conditioning, then most likely it is water from the air con drain. Put your finger in it and see if it seems like water. Also see if it quickly dries up from the ground - if it was coolant or oil then it would leave a stain. When using the air conditioning you get condensation on the evaporator matrix inside the cabin heater. This water runs off and out of a drain to drip under the car. It is noticed more when it is humid outside.
