Default white marks on top of engine, Antifreeze?

Hi I have an 05 2.4 original rad, original hoses with 97xxx miles. I opened up my hood today and noticed white spots like a dried fluid on parts of the engine. My first thought was antifreeze leaking somewhere but where? The upper hose has been swelling alot in the st. louis heat. I did let it run for 30 minutes in the garage and nothing came out. I noticed the dried fluid on the top air manifold and all over the front of the cover the protects the throttle cable and link. there was also just a tiny bit on the battery, thats why I am thinking its the hose. Any help?

Cruiserdad has a point. If you can find a shop that has a pressure tester, they can put enough pressure in the coolant system to force even the smallest pinhole to show itself and reveal where the leak is.
