anti-freeze leak

I noticed I was losing a very small amount of AF, and went investigating. I
see a small leak of the stuff right around the front pulley/ harmonic area.
Any ideas whats going on? What do I need to do?

I have a 96 F150, 5.8

Sounds to me like (knowing absolutely nothing about that engine) that
you need a water pump.
