Coolant Leak, Left side

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. My fiancÚ drives the focus. Last week she tells me how she is losing heat at idle. I realized that the coolant was low, below tank level. I filled it up and it fixed the problem. I'm trying the figure out where I could be losing coolant. During past oil changes I noticed a leak under the engine. I checked all the fluids and they checked out. Now I know that the leak is definitely coolant. I checked the oil, I haven't lost any oil and it is not milky. The leak looks like its coming from under the pulleys. It's really hard to tell since the belts throw the coolant. I checked the radiator line out of the tank and its dry. Any ideas? I'm wondering about the water pump.

Thanks for the confirmation. It really baffled me that it leaked for over a year before causing a coolant problem.
