possible coolant leak from passenger side head

Well I just got done replacing my failed gpr and I noticed what looked like water on the bottom of my oil pan. It looked like it had some color to it, so it may be more than just water. Then I found a pink drop on the trans line just below the starter. The side of the oil pan on the starter side was damp. I do have an oil leak on that side so that is making it hard to see whats what.

No oil or coolant contamination. No fuel in degas bottle. I did just swap out the water pump and I had no leaks after that.

Funny thing is I took it for a ride for about 20 minutes testing out my new torque setup and when I got home it was all dry??? Anyway this may be a wild goose chase, just wondering what could leak coolant above the starter?
Thank you,
Kristian
