A small leak wouldn't drop the level very fast. You sure it's not from the heater core?

Do you hear it venting when you smell it? Something to try that is cheap and can be done at home is to replace the radiator cap with a new one.

Thanks all , i found a small leak in radiator so i bought new one and everything is ok now except that i need to do water circulation i think because there is a bit of air with the coolant,,,,
