Some sources: 1. Slippery liquid under the seat the brake master cylinder or the clutch master cylinder. 2. Sweet smelling liquid under passenger feet, means a coolant leak, off the cooling system 3. Exhaust gas indicates a broken tailpipe or a worn or improperly seated rubber seal around the hatchback 4. Water leakage in air duct

Wash and dry all mechanical parts under the vehicle. Then put under the car a few sheets of newspaper. After a while the leak will be obvious.

If it is water, then mostly likely it condensation from the a/c system. If it isn't water then try placing a piece of cardboard or something similar in the are of the leak. This can help you determine the type of fluid and possible pinpoint the dripping.
