I would guess that water pump or its gasket (or the thermostat gasket) is leaking. But you are also due (or past due) for radiator and heater hose replacement.
It is possible that the water pump internal seal has failed and the coolant is coming from the water pump drip hole, was the pump a rebuilt one? I don't like the rebuilt water pumps, especially since I can get a brand new one for only $10-20 more.
Did you do your regular coolant changes (2 years/30,000 miles) and use a good coolant and add water pump lubricant? Old coolant, and coolant without sufficient lubricating properties will wear the water pump seal very quickly.

I have a bad feeling that that head gasket could be the trouble.
Thanks for all the help
