Where is the coolant exactly- on the rocker cover? Front or rear? I would say the expansion tank is a little too far away from the rocker cover/ engine block to be the culprit, unless the cooling system pressure has blasted it around the engine bay as it has escaped, in which case I'd expect it to be everywhere. Is there any escaped coolant anywhere else that you can see? Coolant hose joints, radiator etc?
