so in the morning i see little dribbles of antifreeze when i start it up on the ground when its cold but once it warms up it stop the water pump was replaced both hoses n radiator has no leaks and also engine dosent smoke to long so i dont think its a head gasket but the question is where else can it be coming from

The thermostat gasket and the gasket between the timing chain cover and block are the two most likely suspects.

Ramtech's right on the money. My timing chain cover had a shot gasket and it took me forever to track that thing down. Thermostats a little hard to get to on these trucks so if you tear into it to inspect a leak throw the $6 thermostat with a fresh gasket in there for peace of mind
