Did you check to see if your AC is still running cold? You should pull out the Trunk tub and covers to see if you can find the source. If its due to something you hit, then your Auto Insurance may cover it. Doesn't look like a warranty claim due to the damage shown to the underside/front of the vehicle.
is yours a D car? If so there is also gear type oil in the front drive motor. You really do need to pull the frunk - its not difficult and is covered on YT. You can also pull the frunk trim to give access to the coolant reservoir. If that turns out to be below the 'min' level you have your answer. If it looks OK it may point to the DU.
