Default Any idea what this is?

I noticed I'm leaking engine coolant and I managed to trace the leak to this part. Its on the bottom drivers side of the radiator. Its plastic with a plastic nut and what looks like a drainage outlet on the bottom. It was fairly loose.

Is this the radiator drain plug?

I tightened it back up all the way

Thanks

Yeah, I believe that should be the radiator drain plug.
