First you need to find out where it is leaking from. That should be first so you can determine the best way to fix it. When you can't find the leak the best bet is a stop leak from your local automotive store (Advanced Auto, Pep Boys, etc.).

Since it's a 13 year old car it most likely needs a new gasket. That's not a big deal but if you don't have the tools or know how to replace them you really should have a mechanic do it.
