Water leak

Seems like ever since i got this truck a couple of weeks ago its something new everyday.

Today after i replaced the water pump i noticed a very small water leak, just a little drip maybe one or two a minute coming from the rear area of the engine. It cant be anything related to the water pump as i did nothing near there. I dont see anything near the heater hoses either. If i had to guess it would be coming from the rear area on the passenger side above or near the starter area.

What could it be?

By the way so far everybody on here has been very helpful i really appreciate it.

Others might be exact but I believe there's engine block water drain plug just above the starter.

Yes, there is a block drain above the starter (there's a corresponding one on the driver's side too). I guess you might want to look at the freeze plugs too. Cheers!

Well i found the leak. Its a crack in the block Starts about an inch forward of the little drain and runs horizontally about 6 inches. Not sure what to do now.
Right now it only drips out slowly but im sure it will get much worse.
