Antifreeze ?

You had a good look see where it's dripping from. Should be wet somewhere.
If it is then trip to dealer. Check it's not a one off or you parked after somebody else who leaked earlier.

Any smell to it, is it remains of an ice popsicle??? My XF left puddles in a similar place and it was air con ice melting during the last hot weather period.

If it was aircon condensate it should be clear water, that is normal. Just check where the radiator header tank is on your car. It looks like antifreeze, has it been topped up recently?

I know it's dirty but it's parked on my driveway so only noticed when I was looking over the car before I cleaned it

Check your drivers footwell for dampness.... I recall an issue some had with washer fluid pipes coming apart.... It's either that or coolant...

If you had driven it hard it might've come out of expansion overflow, but not seen this on cars for a few years now.

Definitely one to check out thoroughly though..

I had washer bottle fluid in my drivers footwear as mentioned above but none outside like that, looks like antifreeze to me, I would get your dealer to check it out for you.
