I think you're on the right track, open the drain or the petcock on the
engine if it has one (or both) and see what you get.
If you get antifreeze, good.
Add 50/50 mix until you can see it, run it and test the antifreeze.
If the tester says its good, finish filling with 50/50.
If its a little low on the protection, add 70/30 as Old mentioned.
If its a lot low, you may need to change it.
Of course, if its been a long time, changing it wouldn't be a bad idea either.
Just a cold time of year to try to do the drain and flush routine.

I would suggest adding straight anti-freeze, not 70/30 to top off if the protection is low, as that will bring you up towards the 50/50 or 70/30 that is ideal that much quicker!
