coolant leak..head gasket or egr delete?

Like the title says I have a coolant leak that seems to be coming from the engine valley and running down the passenger side of head and block then dripping onto trans cooler lines before hitting floor steady drip for hours after truck is shut off. Just wonder what it might be any thoughts?

Take a close look at the heater core 3/4 line, the control valve is on the pass side valve cover and the valve itself is possibly the culprit.

Are you sure it's coolant? and not condensate from heat/air coil.
