AC vent leaking


i posted this same concern in plumbing because I am not sure if it is a plumbling or roofing issue.
First off thank you so much for taking your time to read this and helping out. I have an issue in my house and is hard to diagnose what the problem is. I live in a 2 story house with 2 bathrooms that are right above each other. When I turn on the water to the 2nd floor bathtub, water is dripping through the ac vent on the first floor bathroom. My question is whether its a leak or a condensation problem and how I would go about fixing this. I am not a handyman and I dont want to spend a fortune calling a repairman. It was also a very rainy day when this first started to happen so thats what gave me the idea it might be condensation but I am not sure.

A couple of thoughts

1) Does it only leak when the water upstairs is on?
2) Does it only leak when it is raining?

if it leaks only when the water upstairs is on I would say it is a plumbing leak

If it only leaks when it rains than I would lean toward something else.
