Coolant leak?

Hey guys,

Ive got a hose leaking some kind of fluid, I believe its coolant leaking from the joint that goes to the pcv valve in the valve cover? It leaks quite a bit when I turn the engine off. Im throwing check engine lights for both banks running lean aswell. I have already changed the lower intake manifold gasket and IAC and I recently just saw this leak start happening, so I believe this might be the cause "hopefully" of this leak. here are some pics...

here is the joint... also how do you get the hose out of this joint, is there any trick?

here is the whole hose...

You do know that PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation right? Anyway... Its not supposed to leak any fluid there... If it does leak a fluid, it would be oil and not anti-freeze.
