Coolant leak

I smelled the nice sweet smell of coolant yesterday. Just popped my hood and seen a nice little drip on the passenger side, right behind the ear of the water pump. So it's not directly behind the pump but more to the passenger side. Quick check of cross over and tb coolant tubes and it looked dry. So it is more then likely the water pump. Opinions?

So it did end up being the water pump. Got the truflo from napa. It is made by Gates and is much cheaper on Amazon. I had no time to wait so I had to go to napa. It looks to be a well made piece.

Bleeding the coolant took forever. Longer then the pump swap. Finally broke in and called a buddy of mine. Instructed me to keep engine off, pull line off steam pipe that runs next to ps reservoir and slowly fill radiator till water llcomes out pipe. As soon as I did that I was at operating temp.
