Coolant Leak (with pictures)

Ive had a small coolant leak for about 2 months, didnt really think much of it until now when its gotten alittle worse. Ive always been topping the overflow bottle off. I was taking a look at my engine today and noticed a small puddle of coolant on my engine block. I think its just a leaky hose or something minor (I hope). Ive attached some pictures of were the leak is. Im not 100% sure, but is that the water pump shown in the picture? Ive heard its common for the water pump to go bad..guess Im fearing the worse...
Anyways, your help is much appreciated, as always.

You have a leaking plenum deicer. To repair, you'll need a MGM000010K and an ERR6623 gasket.

Do it now, before you overheat and get to learn how to do head gaskets.

Yes, I am still alive, and still in the Rover parts business.
Text me for greatest likelihood of finding me.

I plan to order these parts as soon as I can. When I put these on, should I bleed the coolant system? If so can someone tell me how? I have no idea.

What he's saying in reference to "head gaskets" is that if you allow your vehicle to overheat, it displaces the steel sleeves around the pistons (because with overheating, your aluminum block and steel sleeves, contract and expand at different rates due to the different textures/ hardness of each different type of metal), creating overpressure--blowing your head gasket. No bueno! I've had to fight this fight and it's neither fast or cheap.
