My thermostat housing leaked a couple years ago. If you replace it, make sure not to over-tighten or you will crack it in half. Also check hoses. The hose on the top of my radiator leaked because the clamp weakened.

Your water pump has a weep hole on its lower backside. Its an indicator that it needs to be replaced.
