Why is there a puddle under my car?

When I start my SEAT Ibiza I see a small amount of water as I reverse for maybe two or three meters. Upon returning I can again see a puddle of water. Yet, when I look at the header tank it is showing the correct level. Any ideas as to what is happening?

Does the car have air conditioning? If so, the water may simply be condensation.

If you are concerned about the coolant or the level starts to drop then I'd recommend having it checked by a qualified mechanic.
