wet rear block (pictures)

Crawling around under my truck today to figure out why my block heater isn't working and noticed some drops of red fluid hanging in a couple places. I'm pretty sure it's coolant...

Started looking around with the flashlight and it looks like it's coming from the rear of the block on both sides. I'm hoping it's not the head gasket, but don't really know where else it would be coming from?

My coolant level in the bottle seems steady, and when I took the cap off today after it had been sitting for over a day it sounded like there was still a little pressure in the system.

Any ideas that would convince me that I don't have head gasket issues would be great!

First two are of the driver's side and second two are passenger side.

Also, on the passenger side, is that the block heater screwed in to the block?

Thanks

Might wanna look in the area of the ERG cooler. One of the parts of your delete may be leaking and coming down and out the back. Check anything else in that area that my leak down on top.

Check around the blue hose from the oil cooler to the EGR cooler it's most likely where your leak is coming from.

Don't forget to also check the "t" fitting for the coolant filter at the heater core hose. Also take a look at the oil cooler housing where the EGR delete hose connects to the oil cooler.

Mine used to do that when i had my egr cooler. found it out was that little rubber hose that everyone else is talking about. replaced it and it was fine.

Now im running into a problem where im getting a little bit of oil running down the drivers side. But i think its coming from my turbo drain seal. might be ordering a new drain pipe and be done with it.

HG's almost never leak externally. At least I have never heard or read of it.
