Exclamation Coolant leak, thinking it may not be the water pump anymore

I was in the process of getting to my water pump to see if its leaking, down to taking the fan assembly off.. I decided to pour some water in the degas bottle to see if the leak is actually coming from the water pump and I have found the leak above the water pump.

I've been unable to pinpoint where the leak is, but it feels like a steady stream of water coming out from below my alternator to the right. I have to put my hand behind the belt to get to where the water is.

Any ideas or suggestions on what this could be or where to go from here?

Check the o-ring on the metal tube that feeds the heater core on that side.

I got the fan out and above the water pump on the front I found where the leak is coming from, I am unable to determine what is specifically leaking, but in the are there is a gasket.. water may be coming from there or above it.. I'm going to try to get some good pics and post
