Question Coolant leak, 98 RS, water pump? seal?

So after a long trip to STPR the next day I noticed my coolant was kinda low, then I noticed small puddle under the car. Later after driving it I could see it dripping at quite a fast rate. I tried to tell where it was coming from. There is a lower coolant line that runs into the waterpump? Which has some sort of gasket im sure, is there anything else there? Where is the thermostat? I plan on replacing the waterpump, gaskets and timing belt and all that, but won't be able to have the $$$$ to do that for a few weeks. I can't tell where exactly it is leaking from, it just pools on a bolt head and drips from there. I tried using some gasket gunk which seemed to stop it for a day, but its back. The weird thing is sometimes it does not drip at all and other times it pisses it out. Can you replace the gasket as a temp fix? where else would it come from unless the waterpump actually cracked. Thanks guys

That's where your thermostat goes.
