2nd low,

The leak would have come from the hose above (most likely), it would not have come from where it is sitting because that is the timing gears housing and only oil could have leaked from that point.

Best way to check it is wash it all down, and while it is cold (ie in the morning) put a coolant test pressure pump in it and leave it for a while, then check where the coolant is coming from...
