Very likely, a leak has developed around the heater core (a mini radiator that supplies the car's interior heat).

Thanks, I also wanted to note that i do not have any fluid reaching the interior but every once in a while I'll get a whiff of radiator fluid and my heat works fine.

Ya I have the same problem just much worse. When I turn on my heat I get much more than a whiff, I get an eruption of steam.
