Problem Found:

It was the heater hose connector to the heater core in the firewall that was leaked.
Thy call this connector as QuickConnect thingy.It leak from the outlet line hose, not so big amount.There is no crack nor apparent damage to the connector, i assume it was the rubber O ring that is worn.

Solution: Remove the connector and apply plumbing tape or sealant tape and reinstall the connector.
No More leak.

Yeah i recently changed both of those tees, the white one started turning brown so i changed it, it was only a matter of time before it cracks. Part numbers for the tees should be 15055343 and 15055342
