Might check it with the truck running. When the water pump is going out it will dump a puddle of antifreeze.

it happens but pretty rare , i would clean it up and put some pressure test the system and verify exactly where the leak is spawning from

doing the head on a cummins is crazy easy although i would get help cause its pretty heavy and service information actually tells you to use a hoist to lift it

good luck
