Leaking coolant

I have coolant leaking form (facing the engine) the top right side of the engine, right in between the electrical fuse box and the engine. Hope this isn't the head gasket area. Car runs for shorts distances, then I see steam coming out, so I haven't driven it anywhere.

There is a coolant line that goes to that general area to the engine block, take a look with a flashlight. Try removing your airbox to get a better look or get under your car.
If it's coming out of the engine block itself - uh oh.... take a pic and we can probably tell you exactly what's up.

I took it the mechanic today, car slightly over heated but i turned it off right away, no damage was done. But at one point there was smoke inside the car. Mechanic is going to get back to me tomorrow with the exact problem.
