Leaking 4.0 sohc

Well for a while i have always smelled raditor fluid when i shut my truck down...well today i really got into it after running it all weekend and found a leak on the block...it looks like its comeing out of one of the top bolts the hold a bracked/header bolt on the passenger side...Any one know if maybe thats one of them type of bolts that run deep in the block where it could reach the raditor fluid running through the motor? And if its an easy fix but just takeing the bolt out and putting some thred lock on it to seal it up???

It shouldnt be coming out of the bolt, take a picture of what your talking about, it could be a coolant hose or something dripping on that bolt, but it shouldnt be coming out of the bolt...

yea if i had a camara i would take a pic....but for real its coming out of that bolt...I think i might take the truck in to the dealer ship to have them fix it...maybe they did something wrong when the motor was rebuilt about 14000 miles ago...who knows...Just kind of weird to me...and i checked all the houses and they were all fine soo....
