coolant started to leak!

Hello just the other day coolant started to leak out of my 2001 2.7l from what I understand the overfill tank has been replaced already and looks newer. I think
that's the case. It looks like its coming from the water pump area and hose?

I think the water pump is going bad?

Most likely the water pump but check the hoses just to be sure. It will be easy to see dampness seeping down the front of the water pump from the shaft area.
