Checque the drain valve to see if it in fact is closed. IIRC screw IN for off and out for on. Most likely what happened is that when u drained and flushed th system it dislodged stop leak or rust that was plugging it and keeping it from leaking should the valve be bad.
BTW, draining and flushing and replacing coolant is absolutely uneccesary unless some cooling problems develope that have caused the antifreeze to be contaminated. Example such as flood vehicles. PERMANAnT Antifreeze does not loose its freeze protection, EVER. Will loose some water pump lubricant capacity but that is minimal to begin with.
IF the cooling system is not causeing problems then LEAVE it alone!!!!
THe draining and flushing and replacing of antifreeze is strictly an industry gimmick. I have vehicles here i've owned in every day operation for as long as 12 to 30 years, 60K to 190K miles and NEVER changed the coolant.
