leaking coolant

my truck is leaking coolant from the front of the motor. it is a steady drip, looks like it may be coming from the bottom of the water pump area. any ideas? leaking water pump/gasket maybe?

When the water pump bearing /seal go bad, coolant will leak from the weep hole. Its a sign you're fixing to lose a waterpump.

That would be what I would do. Shop around - you can get some pretty good prices at RockAuto and other places.
