Water pump would be my first suspect.

Mine had a small coolant leak coming from the driver's side of the engine. It turned out to be coming from the engine oil cooler. The dealer retorqued the bolts and no more leak for the last 10,000+ miles.

The last picture looks just like my truck, I just got under it with a flash light with the truck hot, and it looks like it is coming from a hole about 1/4 inch on the driver side, front of the motor behind the balancer close to the block. Is this the water pump??
