Default 02 7.3l antifreeze leak

Hey ya'll, I got a 2002 7.3 leaking antifreeze. Last time I drove the truck was about 2 months ago, its been parked in my garage ever since. I was walking in the garage today and I noticed antifreeze on the ground, not a whole lot but enough that I need to get the problem resolved. It looks to me like its leaking out of the two main hose clamps on the water pump? I look around all the seems of the water pump and I can see fluid. Also two other small spots of fluid (guessing antifreeze, but no smell) on the garage floor, back by where the starter is located. The clear coolant tank looked pretty dirty inside. I'm gonna have a coolant flush done, then do I replace the water pump? Or is this something deeper. Where to start? I've attached pictures so you can see what I'm looking at.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

The picture with the 3 arrows is a top view, the picture with one arrow is a underside view, and the last picture is my steering stabilizer where most the fluid is leaking from.

Can't quite pinpoint leak as pics aren't very clear I would replace water pump and thermostat housing n I bet she wld be leak free thermostat housings warp because they are so thin and begin to leak they make upgraded ones on ebay . also if u buy a new water pump it will come with a new elbow and oring just make sure when u remove the water pump there is no signs of cavitations in the front cover.
