Radiator leak

2000 ford ranger 3.0 v6
I've replace/ fixed like all the radiator fittings on my engine block. But I'm still leaking coolant I think could be water or mix not quite sure. But it's leaking from like under the hose that has the thermostat in it. It's like under it but I can't see under there with out taking it all apart could it be because the thermostat is bad? Any ideas? Please help I'm beyond baffled on this [email protected]

Might be the water pump.
There is a weep hole underneath the shaft that drives the unit, when it starts to go bad it lets out some water.

Probably water pump or timing cover gasket at that mileage it would be a good idea to go ahead and do timing cover to its only a few more bolts to get it off and the gaskets are cheap.
