Welcome to this ForumZ

I would almost bet that you have a water pump going bad
on the underside of the water pump, i believe you will feel a hole, it will be about the size of a common nail head that is about 2" long.
If that hole is seeping water, the water pump is going bad

+1 I think GT has her nailed. Sounds like the water pump is pooched.
