Definately sounds like heater core. I wouldn't bother fixing it unless you plan to address the low compression issue too. Might as well bypass it to stop the leak though.

No need to put antifreeze in when it's leaking like that. Just use distilled water. You're probably not freezing in AZ anytime soon, right?
