Question Coolant Seepage?

Backing out of the garage today I noticed maybe a drop or two of coolant underneath my car. I decided to investigate, I noticed that where the lower radiator hose meets the engine block there is coolant collecting on part of the block. There is no coolant coming from the hose or any other part of the cooling system, just this small area by where the lower hose connects to the block. I wasnt able to get a good look tonight but would this be something along the lines of a bad gasket, bad water pump, or am I looking at something a bit more like a cracked block?

TIA
Dave

Never hit the red as far as overheating, went towards the upper end of the 'acceptable' range when I had a leak in my rad. about two months ago (been replaced since then and has never strayed from the middle) but never made it to the point where the needle shot up to red and white smoke would pour out.

101k as of this morning, Im going to end up replacing the water pump with the timing belt next week anyways but wanted to figure it out before hand.

Maint...regular maint done at proper intervals, only thing that hasnt been done that should is spark plugs as well as the spark plug boot gaskets due to a very small amount of oil on the spark plug boots.

Hope this helps.
