Does this look like a water pump leak?

I opened the hood and noticed the coolant overflow bottle was low and the truck had never lost any coolant in the past. Upon further inspection, I noticed that there was coolant fluid on the ground. Below are the pictures of the area.
Do you think these are the signs of needing a new water pump? If so, what is a good quality water pump? Are there certain brands of water pumps to stay away from?

Oh ya change that water pump. They are real easy by the way. I bought one from autozone and it stayed in my 2005 for 3 years before i sold the truck. Good luck

looks like a pump. i second 99cumminsron,they are simple to change.i got mine at napa with a lifetime warranty and its been in there couple years now with no problems.see if you can get a mirror in there and look at the bottom of the pump.there should be a weeping hole that will show a trail of coolant coming out if the seal is gone. in the one pic it kind of looks like the top had coolant on it at one time but hard to tell

It looks like the gasket between the block and pump is leaking. For the price and since you would have to remove the pump just replace the pump. Change hoses and t-stat if they are old and change fluid while your thwre

Just got to napa, they're like 50 some bucks and take less than 30 minutes to install, the hardest part is cleaning up the coolant mess you will make

Stuck a mirror under the pump and attempted to get a good picture of the weep hole. The truck has been off for about a hour but the weep hole is wet. I think the weep hole is leaking, but I agree that it looks like the whole seal is leaking. I wonder if this pump is the original and has never been changed out. The pump sure looks like an old one!

Make sure your pump is NOT made in India! I've replaced a couple 'Cummins' water pumps recently on industrial engines they were all made in India, one lasted 2 weeks before it started leaking again, and one is starting to loose the bearing 2 months later. The other's have never had a problem.\

Oh, and it's literally a 5 minute job. Cleaning up the coolant takes longer than the actual repair!

I called around to the Auto parts stores,O'riley's, Advance Auto, and Auto Zone, and most had a house brand made in who knows where for about $50. Auto zone's pump was made in Spain, the others claimed to not know where their water pumps were made! I could not find a name brand water pump anywhere. I'll call Napa and Cummins in the morning. Rock Auto has a Gates and a Bosh water pump that look pretty good. From my past experiences, Rock Auto usually has the best prices on the better quality auto parts. Anyone know if the Gates or Bosh water pumps are good/bad? I rather pay once for a quality water pump that will last.
