Chances are the front radiator is the condensor for the aircon. One behind is the radiator for the cooling system.

What appear to be three radiators - one in front of each other are.

1. Air-con condensor.
2. Intercooler
3. Radiator

A leak form the intercooler would be engine oil.
A leak form the radiator would be coolant.
A leak from the condensor would only be noticed if the refrigerant contained dye.

Although it would not be unusal for any of the two to be contamiated by the other due to their proximity.
