Coolant leak

I'm leaking coolant. The belt squeaks bc of the coolant leaking on it. I think it's from the water pump, not sure. Any suggestions? Also if it is from the water pump, what would I have to replace? Just the gasket or the whole pump?

Take a look under there and observe where it's leaking from. If it is leaking from the water pump, it is unlikely to be the gasket, and probably is coming from the weep hole. Either way, it's something that needs to be physically observed.

2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.

Didn't know there was a weep hole. If it is coming from there then what? Also what is the weep holes purpose? Why would a water pump need one?
