Yup, mine too. I noticed the over-flow tank, hanging on the radiator fan shroud, has a vent molded in the cap and on a hose just below the vent are drop-sized stains the right color for the dye in the antifreeze. I figure fumes from the hot antifreeze escape from that vent which is what I smell. But what's more, small amounts of fluid easily splash out going over bumps and such.
Nothing to get concerned about.
