Only one drop?

If one drop, wait till you see many drops. then you can diagnose the problem.

Anywhere near where the top radiator hose is connected to the thermostat outlet? If it is near there, chances are that the thermostat gasket is shot, and coolant is seeping out from there.

Manifold gasket leaking, you will also find a little bit of oily grim on the inside of your radiator cap, and if you run your finger inside the resivour bottle you will feel it oily also.
