Default Antifreeze leaking

I have an antifreeze leak that only appears occasionally. It is dripping off the back of the oil pan and I cannot see where it is coming from. Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know where it might be coming from? Thanks.

Either freeze plug, or head gasket.

Would there be water/antifreeze in my oil if it were the headgasket? Because the oil looks good. I'll have to get a manual and see where the freeze plugs are. I have never done them before in any vehicle I've had. Thanks.

Oh yeah, in case it helps, I have a 2001 Ranger with 4.0 6 cyl. engine. 77,000 miles.

It was the freeze plug towards the front of the passenger side. It totally started gushing today. Just got the new one in. Thanks for the help!
