Default Coolant leak - where from?

I'm considering buying a '95 Impreza L (1.8L). I noticed on the lower crossmember a drop of coolant, nice and fresh and green. This is the angled part of the crossmember that sticks down with holes in it (that I guess skidplates would bolt on to). There were maybe 2 drops on the ground after several hours.

Is there anything around those parts that might explain the presence of coolant there? A leaky hose? Head gasket? Looking at the overflow tank and dipstick, I don't see evidence of coolant and oil mixing together.

Also, are the oil pans on the EJ18 prone to leakage, as there is a bit of oil on the rear part of the oil pan. It's got about 230K km's (142K miles). Anything else to look for?

How hard is the timing belt replacement on it?

Thanks in advance,
