Leaking from where the cylinder meets the rest of the engine ? Maybe the gasket is broken or not tight....

You need to clean that coolant up, It is highly toxic

So, base of cylinder and cylinder head?

You'll have to take it back apart and check your gaskets.

check your gaskets and make sure the mating surfaces are COMPLETELY clean. might need to use a little gasket sealer like yamabond. also, use a torque wrench when tightening the bolts up and tighten them in sequence.
