Coolant Leaking

Hey guys. Got a little issue. I started the truck last night to let it run since I havent driven it in a while and I noticed it was running a little rough. Was thinking it was cold and just needed to run a bit but I poped the hood anyway and looked around. Found a puddle of coolant behind the water pump by the distributor. Didn't see any of the hoses leaking so I'm thinking it must me the gasket on the water pump?? It looks like the previous owner had replaced it and had used that gasket maker stuff instead of buying a regular gasket. Could this be the issue or could it be something else I am missing?

If it isn't the gasket, look to see if it's leaking out the "weep hole" on the bottom of the pump. Either way, it's gotta come off......but that in itself shouldn't make it run rough.....

look up by the throttle body, on the left. there is a small,3/8 hose that comes from a metal line.it comes in from the top, and goes back out of the bottom. is actually 2 lines to make up a heater to the throttle body. check that it is not rotten, and broke from all the work you did lately. this hose is not available now, so just cut it and use fuel line.
