Yes. If in doubt, just see what kind of liquid it is that's coming out from your car. Should be water about the same temperature as the air.

best thing to do is just touch it with your hand, and smell it.. if it smells like nothing and looks clear, most likely condensation. If youre willing, put your tongue on it.. That will give you the definite

Yeah, if it smells musty, it's most likely AC condensation. You probably should change your cabin microfilter as well

The drain tube runs exits on the right side of the transmission. It is attached to the right side of the transmission tunnel. There may be a second drain tube at the firewall but I haven't seen it. Besides, the under body is covered with panels, so where the water actually drips out can vary depending upon what angle the car is sitting.
