Typically, there's a drip pan located under the evaporator coil. Moisture in the air condenses in the coil and drips into the pan. The design of the A/C has the pan located a 1/2 to an inch above the roof and behind the opening in the roof. There are usually a couple holes in the drip pan. The water drips out of the holes onto the roof, then across the roof to the gutters, then to the end of the gutters and to the ground.
The best pic I could find is the 2nd pic in post 14 here:

The box on the left with the white sticker has the evaporator coil in it; but you can't see the drain holes in the pic.
If you pull off the A/C cover as this guy has, you should be able to see the drip pan and the holes, and make sure they are not plugged or clogged.
Sometimes you can hear the Freon gurgling in the lines. That might be what you're hearing. I don't know if that's normal or means something is going wrong.
Maybe someone with more expertise can chime in.
