    I noticed a small puddle of water underneath my car and looked to find a continuous slow drip near the front of the battery. It was parked for less than 2 minutes and I had the AC running. Is this from the AC condensation or something I should have service look at?

    Very likely just condensation. What does it smell like?

    Yep. That's where the AC condensate drains out. Check it to make sure it's water, just in case, but 99.99% odds it is.
