Gasket? Water pump?

So how screwed am I on this? Just noticed a leak from the front of the engine on the drivers side. Seems to be the pink orange coolant. Worst thought an intake gasket? Water pump is near by but hard to tell. Anyone have any experience with this issue? Possible prices? Asking for advice before I head to the shop.

No not one bit! These ever known to leak from the left cylinder head plug? On the other hand looks a lot like a head gasket

From the picture it appears to be wet above the head gasket up near the power steering pulley. I have noticed some minor belt squeak almost un noticeable. Is there a plug in that area that could be leaking? I'm just trying to convince myself it's not a head gasket it hasn't showed any other symptoms besides the leak.
