Is it the inside evaporator coil (essentially the AC versions of a heat exchanger) or the outside compressor coil? Also, there is usually a collection pan under the evaporator coil that collects condensate as it drips off the coil and then drains it out of the house. The drain could be blocked up.
Also look at the coil to be sure it is not condensate dripping off the outside of the coil. Often these things get dirty and build up some ice/condensation and it can look like it is leaking when it isn't. Add a plugged drain and it looks worse than it is.
If it is clearly leaking out of the evaporator coil then you need to call an HVAC tech right away. You could be leaking coolant not water and you may need to replace the evaporator coil.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
