Hi, I have a small oil leak coming from the area in the photo attached.
Any suggestions on what could that be?

Looks like coolant coming from water pump weep hole.

Time to get a new water pump and related gasket/O ring.

Drips tend to work their way down, except when wind pushes them up.
That said, I'd be looking above that spot for the leak.
Could be the water pump gasket, but could also be a coolant hose clamp.
