Leak

Ok so the other day ago was the coldest day of the year it was around -10*F and the next morning i got up and noticed a pretty good size puddle in the snow. It was on the passenger side behind the front tire. It must have leaked out during the night but I did notice a little drip while I was letting it warm up and also towards the rear of the block I noticed a another drip which was a real light green color. They both smell like fuel but were different colors? This is my first diesel and I am a little concerned and was just wondering if anyone knows what the heck is going on with my truck. Any help would be great, Thanks Sam.

It might be a heater hose clamp leaking.

Thanks. I did a little more lookin around and Im pretty sure its the fuel drain that is leaking due to worn out o-rings. It seems a lot of people are havin this problem. Im not sure about the other leak though maybe just the slush and dirt mixed with the fuel and its makin that weird color and leaking off as it melts.
