Dude. I hope you put up the wrong pictures by mistake. I hate using my break time at work to come in and help folks, only to find this picture of a water pump:

Certainly in the water pump area. Leaking around the O-ring?

i see the problem, the manikin (sp) has no head.. and your clothes look very much like a dress........









but on a serious note.. its kinda hard to see where the waterpump is only because of the amount of stuff in the way not to mention the silly angle you have to look at it., but if you can get a decent look, you should see some bleeding (or coolant) around the waterpump, and the thermostat housing (you might be able to get your hand in there to feel near the thermostat housing for dampness) if you just had recent work done on your cooling system and you actually had a problem with a slight overheat , chances are your gonna have to replace everything in due time.. and there is also the chance that they didnt connect a hose properly.
