I can't really tell where it is leaking from. Can you describe the area better where it is leaking?
Some of the most likely places that leaks happen on these engines are the water pump and the intake manifold gaskets.

The hole is to the right of the hole pictured and under the compartments kind of hard to get to. Like an elbow would fit both holes. Hope that helps

I think it is probably an intake manifold gasket leak, but it's really hard to tell from the pic and description. Any good repair shop can do a pressure test to pinpoint the leak.
