I don't understand why you would be draining that fluid at this time. That car should be equipped with DexCool which GM says should last 5yr/100K. Going that long can cause problems but it should be at least good for 3yr/50K. Do you have that much on it.
Sometimes removing a hose is the easiest way to get it drained. If there is a drain, it can be really hard to access anyway.

The drain plug appears to be on the passenger side of the car facing the engine.If you really need to change the coolant and its easier to pull a hose I would do so as Desi said.

02 Chevy Malibu Radiator

Thank you all for the help I found the drain plug. It is on the drivers side and it was right in my face, the end of the radiator drivers side very bottom.
