After a drive and you get home, park the vehicle but do not turn it off pop the hood and have a look around, see if you can see any steam anywhere, look for any leaks, especially on hose connections and at the water pump. If no luck, turn off the engine and get your nose under the hood and sniff around, see if you can find where the smell is strongest. .
Have you been running your heater? You do not smell this from inside the car? no steamed up windshield? Check your floorboard under the dashboard for any damp or wet spots.
The coolant res has an exhaust port I assume, when the vehicle is running look for any steam coming out, look at the res and see if you can make out any bubbles. Constant bubbles can be a sign of exhaust gases getting into the coolant through a break in the head gasket seal. I would think if you are getting enough exhaust pushing through the coolant into the res with hot coolant, it has to get out of the res through the port and take along with it vaporized/steam from the coolant, maybe enough for you to notice the smell.
If the coolant level has not dropped I do not assume you have a leak of coolant into the oil, but would not hurt to take a look at the oil to make sure it is not starting to look milky and check for steam coming out the exhaust.
